The Library as the “City’s Living Room”

By | November 6, 2014

Came across this article about a newly redesigned library in Canada. The space looks absolutely beautiful and it seems to have everything anyone could ever need in one building:

“At almost triple the size of the original, the library will provide a 300-seat performance space to support the city’s burgeoning arts scene; two cafes – including one overlooking the scenic harbour; gaming stations; e-book  services, two music studios where people can bring instruments to the library and play, record, and burn a CD; a dedicated space for adult literacy; a First Nations reading circle; a boardroom for local entrepreneurs; and space for arts and culture based seminars.”

Oh and it only cost $57 million, no big deal!
