The spread of the knowledge society and the growth of digitalization challenge the current configuration of the physical library space. In coming years the library environment will change radically, irrespective of which kind of library we are talking about. This article focuses on the library’s evolution, and on the spatial and design changes that lie ahead for the traditional library in both the Danish and general contexts. The article provides a brief description of certain innovative changes in two new Danish public libraries, in Aarhus and Hjørring.
