Public libraries as co-working and maker spaces

On June 30, at 3 p.m., a new webinar will focus on public libraries as co-working and maker spaces in the Nordic countries. Mina Di Marino, MC Member of the Cost Action CA18214, and representing Norway, will discuss with Sanna Huttunen, specialized librarian, from the Central Library Oodi, Helsinki. In several countries, public libraries have become more multi-functional than ten years ago. They provide new digital and spatial services such as spaces and facilities for working. In the webinar, we want to understand the role and functions of co-working and maker spaces in public libraries (who are the users?); impacts of this kind of libraries on the peripheries; impacts of Covid and what measures have been taken for reopening these spaces.

The video-recording is availble at
