Report from the West Bank

Join us at the Central Library next Monday June 8 at 7 pm as Jessa Lingel of Microsoft Research talks about libraries, information centers and access to books in the West Bank.  In April 2015, Jessa was a member of a delegation from Librarians and Archivists with Palestine (LAP) who traveled to the West Bank to meet with representatives of cultural centers, librarians and community education centers. They participated in workshops on topics such as access to information, library science education, and access to children’s books in Arabic.  Jessa Lingel will report back on the 2015 delegation, the different organizations, institutions and libraries visited, and the different projects and partnerships emerging from these meetings.
