Membership Libraries in America

Athenaeum Librarian Bryn Hoffman will speak on American membership libraries, also called subscription or social libraries, and their role in contemporary library and information science. There will be a particular focus on the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum and the way in which its unique institutional model - it is both a membership library and the public library for the town of St. Johnsbury - might help offer a new perspec­tive on the relationship between communities and their libraries in the digital age.
