Ep 5 – Community-Led Libraries with Jorge Cardenas

Listen here!

What is community-led work in and for libraries? We got to sit down with Jorge Cardenas in Allison’s home to talk about what it means to work in libraries with a community-led focus. Jorge is a community librarian and currently manages Burnaby Public Library’s McGill branch. He is also an instructor at the University of British Columbia, where he co-taught the Community-Led Libraries class with Christie Menzo, and is now teaching it solo for the 2019-2020 academic year. * Correction Jan 20, 2020: Jorge and Christie are in fact teaming up again to co-teach the Community-Led Libraries course
