My name is Daniel Marcou and I currently work as a librarian in Minnesota where I provide library service and programs to adults who are incarcerated.
Previously, I was employed in a variety of public, special and academic library settings, including as a consumer health librarian and the director of a small public library.
In 2009, I was recognized as a Mover and Shaker by Library Journal for promoting public libraries as a reentry resource to people leaving corrections facilities. I’m currently investigating how public libraries can better serve families affected by incarceration.
I’m very interested in how libraries and reading can create positive change in people, especially those who have experienced incarceration. I firmly believe that good design integrated with the right information will make the world a better place!
