Knight News Challenge: Libraries offers applicants a chance to share in $2.5 million by focusing on the question “How might we leverage libraries as a platform to build more knowledgeable communities?”
Above, Lesa Mitchell, the founder of Network for Scale and an expert on the impact of the maker movement, discusses the role libraries can play as shared spaces where diverse members of the community teach, learn, perform, create and share ideas.
