Roaming Volunteer Library Brigade from ULU

ULU's Volunteer Library Brigade has rolled out to the sidewalks, parks, and subway stations of New York City. Small teams set up tiny mobile library carts in public spaces around the city and to do on site-volunteer library work as needed for the citizens of New York City. We will look stuff up, hand out books, run storytimes for kids, offer directions, advocate for libraries, and more. The carts are stocked with reference books, maps, giveaways, WiFi, and free eBook downloads.

Christian and Lauren will represent ULU at SXSW Interactive to show off the VLB carts. Their presentation will show participants that through the tactical application of virtual communities and traditional sweat, you can achieve incredible results in your community.
