Libraries in the News: TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paiken

For decades the demise of the library has been predicted. But in 2023, is the library now more relevant than ever? From makerspaces to outreach programs and media literacy opportunities to podcast and video equipment, the library has evolved into a community hub. The Agenda examines the new role of the library, with: Shamichael Hallman, Loeb Fellow at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and co-founder of, Libraries as Bridges; Sabrina Saunders, CEO & Board Secretary at the Blue Mountains Public Library; Mary Chevreau, CEO of the Kitchener Public Library; Vickery Bowles, City Librarian at the Toronto Public Library.
