4. Amazing Library Update — New Books!

Books! Reports! Magazines! Amazingness!

Great news this week: we picked up our final installment of our book order from TYPE Books!!! Some new titles on the shelves:

‘Carfree Cities’ J.H. Crawford

‘Watch this Space: Designing, Defending, and Sharing Public Spaces’ Hadley Dyer and Marc Ngui

‘Growing Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces’ Gayla Trail

‘Ride to Modernity: The Bicycle in Canada, 1869-1900’ Glen Norcliffe

And many many more!!! The newly updated catalogue can be found on our website here.

There is also a new colour-coded dot sorting system. Pretty self-explanatory when you see it (legend is visibly posted). So next time you’re browsing the shelves, try to put the book back with it’s like-color-dotted friends.
