Overview

The Library Relevancy Project: keeping libraries what they're supposed to be, knowledge store houses. With libraries desperately trying to remain relevant in an ever changing world, they're branching out into roles already being fulfilled by other organizations such as hackerspaces instead of focusing on new ways to do what they've been doing for centuries already. This is a draft for what may become a future proposal to local libraries.
