The IndieWeb-ified Library

I know that there are lots of personal IndieWeb sites around, and even an indieweb site for a cat, so why a library join the IndieWeb?

IndieWeb Core Principles and Libraries

Indeed, libraries are meant to store, protect, and help disseminate information. These functions alone should make them ground zero for the philosophies of owning your own data and making one more connected to their community which underpin the IndieWeb. Shouldn’t they? It almost makes me suspicious that libraries aren’t part of the IndieWeb movement.

Little Free Library #8424

Now sadly, this particular library is ridiculously small, but that doesn’t make it any less important or special. If anything, it’s even more special now because Little Free Library #8424 (Adams Hill) is a proud member of the IndieWeb.

(And yes, for those interested, the library definitely also accepts Indie Book donations!)
