10 June 2018


"Third places" such as libraries, churches, and digital social networks are important community builders because they are easily accessible and trusted,. The Third Places and the Homeless, T-Path, collection brings together resources about exemplary third places that are creating and strengthening communities. The goals of this collection are 1) to increase understanding of third places; and 2) discover the front-line libraries, churches, and digital social networks that are addressing the needs of the homeless. The primary audience for T-PATH resources are people of faith, librarians, and teachers.
