One Book, One Community programs are, of course, a staple of public library adult programming. Now, another twist: in February, the Chicago Public Library (CPL) launched its One Book, One Chicago (OBOC) Online, becoming, it says, the first public library in the nation to offer free, in-browser, social reading of a full novel.

Rethink the library: Next gen becomes resource for tech, entrepreneurs

Rethink the library: Next gen becomes resource for tech, entrepreneurs | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

At some Colorado libraries, there are no overdue fines, no Dewey Decimal System and absolutely no shushing!

A revolution is underway. And leading the charge is Anythink, the rebooted seven-branch Adams County system, which has a smattering of digital studios, 3-D printers, photography labs and a cafe. Anythink has gone from one of the state's worst-funded library systems to a national leader within a decade.

On Monday, Anythink's innovation team was in Austin, Texas, at South by Southwest Interactive to inspire the tech community into collaborating with libraries. Joining a group of spirited librarians known as lib*interactive, the Anythink team hit the streets equipped with temporary tattoos, colorful chalk and a snappy slogan: "Not the same old shhh."

Mordecai Richler gets his glory: Montreal renames library after him

Mordecai Richler gets his glory: Montreal renames library after him | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Finally, on Thursday night, 14 years after Mordecai Richler’s death, a solution: In a French borough filled with the nationalists he regularly sent up, the city renames a library filled with French books housed in a converted Anglican church. Henceforth, the works of a satirist who showed no mercy on authority will be shelved at the Bibliothèque Mordecai-Richler in the glow of five-metre stained-glass windows depicting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

 

“A library in Mile End. It’s perfect,” Mr. Richler’s son Jacob said in a simple and dignified ceremony at Montreal City Hall. “The fact it’s located in a former Anglican church somehow makes it a little more so.”
