Re-Envisioning Branch Libraries - The Architectural League of New York

A design study and symposium organized with the Center for an Urban Future.

"The DPL was designed to take advantage of the exploratory nature of children. Instead of a quiet, stern research center, the library became an info adventure.

This cornucopia of materials org by interest and age levels provided an atmosphere of discovery, invention, & self-actualization." --Pam Sandlian, Pub Lib…

Oak Park Public Library's Idea Box. One of my favorite examples of libraries thinking outside (or in this case inside) the box. I love everything about this and it really solidified the idea of library engagement and participatory experience for me. Is there a particular example of libraries in action that inspired you this semester?
