LA County Library
Stanton Fellowship, 2020

Skye Patrick is the Library Director of LA County Library, one of the largest public library systems in the nation, serving one of the most diverse populations where the entire range of human experience, or close to it, can be found among Los Angeles County’s 10 million inhabitants. Like most large urban areas, the County is also highly segregated and a lack of equality has caused disparity and challenges in the communities being served. Skye is exploring how libraries in the 21st century can be transformed to address the  social, educational, creative and cultural needs of Los Angeles County residents. With a focus on equity and meeting the needs of the people, she will explore how to better position the library as a center of learning to positively impact the quality of life and future of Angelenos.
