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, Bianca St. Louis, program coordinator for the nonprofit CODE 2040, a previous Knight News Challenge winner, discusses the role libraries can play in the digital age, the gaps in news and information they can help fill and how they can be hubs of creation and community support that connect diverse groups.
