    When was the last time you visited the library to borrow a book? The idea of a “free” library seems sort of quaint and old-fashioned in an era when most of us feel like we can find any information we want by typing g-o-o-g-l-e on our computers. Are libraries becoming obsolete? On this episode of Media Inside Out host Sherri Hope Culver sits down with guests to discuss the role of libraries as information literacy hubs for the 21st century.

        SLOW POLITICS | Berliner Gazette Conference 2014 | November 13-15 Supermarkt | Brunnenstr. 64 | Berlin Info: www.berlinergazette.de/slow-politics Position Paper "Snowden Commons" -> PDF Download ( http://berlinergazette.de/wp-content/uploads/Snowden-Commons.pdf ) SLOW POLITICS investigated perspectives for a precarious generation that is deeply concerned about its rights, liberties and privileges: How can a communal feeling arise in Europe if national self-interests prevail? How can we practice transparency if secret services are booming beyond public control? How can our mobile societies restore inner peace if migrants are always "the others"? How can we save the environment if consumerism and economics remain rampant? 

What happens to free access to culture and knowledge if public institutions continue crumbling? On its third day of Public Talks SLOW POLITICS dealt with these future concerns in five panels and explored the common denominator linking all these issues. Watch the live videos below!

            Thanks to good old Ben Franklin, we have a long tradition of public libraries in America. If you don't have one in your town, you've got one somewhere in your county. If you live in a large city, you've got many neighborhood branches to choose from. Go visit the library with your kids. They'll be welcomed by a librarian who encourages them to explore the books and bring home an armload. Library books open worlds for kids and they're free! Annie talks with children's librarian, Michelle Coxford, about the tremendous benefits of reading to your children and having your children read to you. About Michelle Coxford Michelle Coxford is the mom of two young boys, an avid reader, and the Regional Children's Librarian for Stanislaus County, California.
