UpClose: Designing 21st-Century Libraries | Library by Design

UpClose: Designing 21st-Century Libraries | Library by Design | library design | Scoop.it
Public libraries are busier and more popular with patrons than ever. Today’s library is a place for social interaction as well as quiet reading. It is a community cultural center, not simply a repository for books. It is a welcoming building with a design focus on transparency, not a series of isolated spaces. These changing operations directly affect the layout and organization of library buildings. So, libraries today must be designed to accommodate more simplified administrative operations and new staff functions.

great article on the future of libraries...And yes... there will still be physical books :D

Eva I. Fischer's curator insight, March 7, 9:14 AM

As I librarian I love these kind of articles... however I do want to say that realistically we are not essential and irreplaceable, rather we STRIVE to remain essential, irreplaceable and relevant!

And we're doing a good job! So let's all keep up the good work!
