Maarya Rehman with over a decade of experience with libraries talks about the importance and need of libraries, even in the digital age, and how they serve as a good third place. Maarya began her career in libraries over 18 years ago, developing stock, information services, and programmes for public libraries across London. In 2015, she moved to Pakistan to open two libraries for the British Council, in the cities of Lahore and Karachi, as well as a nationwide Digital library. The British Council libraries in Pakistan aim to bring the best of UK culture and library provision to a new audience in Pakistan. Maarya studied Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cambridge. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
