BOOKS: Missing Libraries?

Are you missing the opportunity to visit your library in the current virus lockdown?

Try listening to this 7 minute article on what you’re missing, by Umberto Eco, writing somehow despite having his tongue firmly in his cheek.  The essay “How to Organize a Public Library” is selected and read by Booktube creator Shawn D Standfast.
