“Libraries are such amazing spaces. They are democratic in themselves, and forums for people to come together. It’s a place where you can share your culture.”
So says Paris-born cultural champion, Bruno Spandonide.
He’s been sharing culture at his local library as part of a program that aims to increase connections between diverse cultures and communities.
“You can discover the world when you go to a library.”
Bruno's ideas on the library being a force for positive change are right on, and something that many of world’s leading thinkers on cities and sustainable living agree with.
So why are the places where we borrow our books a major tool in fighting racism and discrimination?
