UC Talks #2: The changing role of the community library: UC Talks with Melissa Martin

This month, Jemma Samala and UC Talks with University Community Branch Library manager Melissa Martin. Did you know that the library is not just a place to check out books anymore? The library is also a space to meet, a touch point for those who seek social interaction, and a safe place for those who want to use a computer or just hang out for a while.

There is also homework help, cultural activities and concerts, STEAM activities and much more.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out how Melissa got started in the library system; what she feels are some of the most pressing library programming needs; and whatever happened to the Dewey Decimal System?
