David Giles | Movers & Shakers 2016 – Change Agents

As research director for the Center for an Urban Future (CUF), a New York City–based public policy think tank, David Giles had the chance to advocate on a grand scale—for the 217 branches across New York City’s three library systems. He wrote CUF’s 2013 report, “Branches of Opportunity,” which examined the roles of the city’s neighborhood libraries; in 2014, “Re-Envisioning New York’s Branch Libraries” focused on the severe design, space, and infrastructure challenges they faced.
