We will share how Saint Paul Public Library has utilized data tools, activities, and workshops to build a data literate culture in our library and community. We partnered with the MIT Media Lab's Center for Civic Media to bring a series of "Data Therapy" workshops to Saint Paul, based on the work of researchers Rahul Bhargava (MIT) and Catherine D'ignazio (Emerson).
