When Our Local Libraries Closed, Here's How We Designed Our Own

 

What would you do if your city announced it would close 19 out of 25 local libraries? Protest, complain, become a cynic, or take action and create something new? A group of residents from Rotterdam chose the latter when we learned that our libraries would be closing by the end of 2012.

 

We saw the situation as a cultural and social disaster. We quickly devised a strategy in which we invited people from the neighborhood to tell us what their ideal "reading room" would look like, and what they would be willing to do to make it happen. These conversations led to a whole range of ideas, and helped us envision what the reading room could be. The meetings also started building a community that could work together to make the idea real.

Sharla Shults's insight:

There is hope for BOOKS and the places that house them!
