Nate Hill and I Talk About Libraries


Urban Omnibus kindly invited Nate Hill, deputy director at the Chattanooga Public Library and the man behind their much lauded 4th Floor “public laboratory and educational facility,” to talk about branch libraries: what resources (human, physical, digital, spatial, civic) they do and can offer, what systems around the world are engaging in exciting experimentation, what libraries can do to better serve their publics, etc. Nate and I are both involved in the Architectural League’s design study (co-organized with the Center for an Urban Future) of New York’s three library systems’ branch libraries.
