Prisons and Libraries

We would like to thank everyone for coming out tonight for the PLG Prisons and Libraries panel. At the start of the panel we had a short slide show with information about incarceration, as well as some PLG contact information. As requested, I’ve posted the link to it below.

Little Free Libraries

Recently, the Star Tribune had an article about Little Free Libraries: http://strib.mn/2qbEkEa

St. Kate’s have two Little Free Libraries on campus, built by the Progressive Librarians Guild in 2012. Check out the story below from the St. Kate’s Wheel and make sure to check out the libraries. One is located at the entrance of Gate Two on Randolph, and the other is across from the Butler Center.
