Organizing Communities to Stop Library Closures

How do you stop library closures when it`s an inside job? Appointed boards can leave public libraries governed by people with private interests. In this panel discussion we will share the story of how the people of Cincinnati rose up and stopped the sale of the downtown North Building that the board considered a piece of "prime real estate." Participants will walk away with community organizing tools, direct action tactics, & the sense of professional solidarity we need to resist these attacks.
