Marginalia: Little Libraries in the Urban Margins

This is a great article about non-traditional library projects. I found the discussion of the distinction between art projects and libraries interesting. Pretty much all of the project coordinators they spoke to still saw the need for more traditional libraries in the community and saw their projects as additions for addressing niche or unmet needs.

I actually contacted Reanimation Library and visited briefly when I was up in New York. Unfortunately, they have no source of funding, so the space is basically half a room, but they’re still doing really cool things.
