The term "tactical urbanism" is a new phrase for a type of action that has existed for centuries: actions designed to improve a city or neighborhood with minimal oversight, budget, or delay. It's usually local, immediate, and accomplished without a lot of training or resources. Munro shows that, although libraries have reputations as traditional and bureaucratic, they are also communal systems which can utilize the grassroots, humanist values of tactical urbanism.

Clear, concise writing sets this book apart from other library-focused titles. Munro provides plenty of inspiring examples, and writes with a sense of humor and a flow that makes the book easy to read. After each case study she provides practical instructions for making the examples relevant to the kind of library *you* work in. This is a book for anyone who has been stymied by bureaucracy and wants to think strategically to effect change.
