3rd places and other delights
A short but sweet newsletter to give folks time to enjoy a popsicle, slightly melted in the best kind of way, under dappled sun or next to a bestie.

Fun fact: The majority of community members in our Uncommon Slack said the library was their home-away-from-home when they were kids. As a lover of public spaces, this brings me great joy. The convo is in the #banter channel—feel free to join the Slack and add your own 3rd place.

With great affection, 
Rebecca and all the Roomies
