All In One: Libraries Re-Imagined

Scroll down

Bad libraries build collections, good libraries build services, great libraries build communities.

R. David Lankes

The idea of what constitutes a library is ever changing.

A library in a traditional sense, is a building or room containing books, periodicals, films and recorded music for use or borrowing by the public. The concept of a library has changed significantly with the rise of technology.

The concept of a library needs to be redefined. It is no longer just a bank of knowledge but a space that creates unique and different experiences for those who interact with it. As designers we must equip libraries with essential community needs and future proof these spaces.
