David and Daniel Gonçalves of the Bibliotecas são Comunidades blog asked me to write a post for their bog:
The theme of the text is to imagine a world without libraries. The aim is to demonstrate the importance of libraries and how much we depend on them.
As you can see from the text I wrote, this was fun and exciting for me. It also has me thinking about imaginative advocacy. The use of stories, drawings, and creative other creative works to advocate for libraries, but more in general.
I know this is a pretty rich and well developed area. I just started to thinking how I could be a part.
In any case, let me know what you think (the text is in English): Bibliopocalypse
