– Jo Giudice, on the library being an advocate for the homeless
“The library is a place of free and open access for every human being, and we are all human beings. We are all equals, and you are our customers.”
In Episode 1 of Street View, you meet Rashad Dickerson, host of Street View, and learn more about the Dallas Public Library’s Homeless Engagement Initiative from library staff. Part 1 of the podcast provides background on the project from library staffer Jasmine Africawala. Part 2 showcases Rashad Dickerson and introduces us to Ann Bever. Part 3 features the Director of Libraries, Jo Giudice and her stance on public libraries and the issue of homelessness. The podcast is split into three parts for time-sensitive listening.
