Maiolina Nascimento Neves – Belém (PA)
Before Tô na Rede, I always believed in something innovative. And I’ve always believed that working with the community is very strong, not only for me, but for all the people who came here daily in the library. So I’ve always been very close to this community. I think Tô na Rede comes to reaffirm this that I believe – that the strength of the library is in the community. It is not in an institution itself, but rather in the community, which comes every day here, in our work, in our library, to search for what moves each one: it is either a consultation, or a manga, a comic book … And we’re here. I am here every day, as if it were the first day of my work. Always open and always cheerful. Maybe it’s also because of what I do in the library, which is the ludic part. But it also has to do with my way of being. So the project comes to reaffirm what I feel and what I believe, what is this exchange of knowledge with the other – not only the technological knowledge, but from person to person.
