Climate Change Conversations in Libraries (C3L) is an emerging network of libraries of all types (e.g. public, academic, school, governmental, archives) bringing their communities together to vision and manifest a resilient, just future.
In these times of political, economic, and social disruption, libraries endure as places of stability and life-long learning. Neither the workplace nor the home, libraries operate as a third space, offering resources and meeting/learning spaces (usually free) that foster social connection alongside intellectual and creative activities. Libraries are well-positioned to host conversations on challenging topics (e.g. climate change, institutional racism), inviting all voices to the table and amplifying civic solidarity.
