Meg Backus

Central Library Director
Onondaga County Public Library

Meg earned her Masters of Library Science from, and sometimes teaches classes at, Syracuse University’s School of Information. She has worked in public libraries for 8 years, running IT, tech services, and patron services departments, developing innovative, civic-minded library projects featured in Wired, on NPR, and in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Meg is interested in libraries as places to explore the delivery of creative, productive, equitable public spaces which leverage community expertise, allow for growth and flexibility, and evolve according to local needs in ways that align with fundamental library values like inclusiveness, access, and cooperation. She thinks of libraries as active testing grounds for building the society that should exist.
