The blog from Parque Biblioteca Tomás Carrasquilla – La Quintana, in Medellin, Colombia, expresses [1] [es] its support for free culture [2]. After explaining the liberties [3] [es] free culture brings, the blog describes how can this fit together with a librarian's work:

Public libraries can learn from these liberties to share the creative processes carried out within the communities they serve, and this can empower local information service, co-created, shared, noticed and available to everybody so other libraries, organizations, study groups and individuals may be able to replicate them, improve them and adapt them to their own needs and necessities, so in tiime they can give back those experiences to the original node and diversify what they have learned.

The post reviewed here was part of the first [4] #LunesDeBlogsGV [Monday of blogs on GV] on May 5, 2014, submitted [5] by María Juliana [6].
