Home Libraries are the New Black [5]

February 25 @ 14:00 - 16:00 EET

Invited guest: Anneli Vainio, writer, retired doctor, based in Espoo & Kemiönsaari, will share a presentation titled 'Kohtaamattomuus terveydenhuollossa' which tells about the unencounterable aspects of pallative care, based on their book 'Kohtaamattomuus' (2023) published by Enostone. Co-produced with Enostone kustannus. In presence presentation & broadcast to online radio in Finnish language. Link for book.

Theme: Care. Open online radio session which invites locals to join reading aloud books from the English-language collection, or 'matching' or similar content books from own or others' collections in Swedish or Finnish, or any other language.

What happens when you make public your private library collection, sharing a lifetime of personal book collection in a public space? How can people develop their own collective book library resource, complementing & contrasting, respecting differences as a whole? How to nurture and expand a socialised library? How can home libraries complement municipal libraries and support cultural events? In this case, Andrew Gryf Paterson’s example will be a way to reach out to the local community: Seeking common interests, common (or same) books in Swedish or Finnish that exist, reading aloud sessions, online radio broadcasts, and open bibliographic work. There will also be ongoing vermicomposting with donated old books.

As part of 9.2.–10.3.2024 process in Salon at Kulturhus Björkboda, Kimitoön/Kemiönsaari, SW Finland. More info: https://kubu.fi/project/home-libraries-are-the-new-black/
