What goes into making public spaces places to gather and create social ties? Designer Shannon Wray will talk about the philosophy and psychology behind creating libraries and schools that encourage community building. Shannon works with Quinn Evans, a Richmond firm which created the new Henrico County libraries and is developing Swem Library’s new digital technology space. 

Please note that the City of Williamsburg requires masks for all visitors in the Stryker Center regardless of vaccination status.
