Description

Brooklyn Public Library President Linda Johnson has an awkward moment when New York Times urban affairs correspondent Sam Roberts contrasts the secrecy he encounters in government with the mandate of librarians and archivists — to actually share information. This at the very time when the BPL board had decided to withhold from the public its long-term plans to sell off library properties to private real estate developers. Read Michael White's shocking expose of secret library real-estate deals: http://noticingnewyork.blogspot.com/2014/08/mostly-in-plain-sight-few-conscious.html ... and a summary here: http://noticingnewyork.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-multiplicity-of-scoops-astounding.html Original Video: MAS Presents the Art Forum: Libraries as Cultural Hubs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgzzYm7eITw
