Lane Wilkinson:

"The Little Free Library Project of Madison, Wisconsin is one of the more successful projects, though a lot of attention is also given to urban hacking Department of Urban Betterment project in New York City."

 

1. Librarians don’t define what a library is.

2. Libraries aren’t just about knowledge and information.

3. Printed books are still relevant.

4. Libraries will always find a way.

 

"Just to reiterate, I’m not saying that DIY libraries are a replacement for institutional libraries. I’m not saying that librarians are unnecessary. Institutional libraries serve an essential purpose that should not be diminished and professional librarians are absolutely vital. All I’m trying to point out is that the DIY movement highlights certain social attitudes that libraries and librarians shouldn’t neglect."
