The thought of a future without libraries compelled me to make a documentary addressing their decline. I wanted to show that libraries are symbols of social equality that were built initially by the working class to educate and improve their children’s lives and the country as a whole.
Author Jeanette Winterson says that “libraries are doing more education work than ever. Libraries and literacy cannot be separated”. She protests strongly against libraries being classed as “leisure”, alongside sports centres, and says they should instead be part of the national education budget.

IN4tuity‘s model for the social cybernetics of the deep, (or noetic,) public library.
phenomenology: experienced inquiry in the lifespace
praxis: learning rooted to inner/outer experience and awareness
pragmatics: keen sense of solving problems, living through challenges, orderly analysis (and meta-analysis)
psychoenergetics: caring feel, the vibe of the institution, the vibe of the contexts, crucially: the vibe of the actualized commitments
(IN4tuity named the consulting partnership, with the late Kenneth Warren (1952-May 21, 2015,) This was the model that underpinned our focus on supporting the humanistic library.)
