Report from Denmark: Designing the new public library at Aarhus, and the People’s Lab
MARCH 6, 2014
Three and a half years ago, the Danes wrote a report on public libraries in the knowledge society, and went looking for partnerships, which is unusual for the Danes, says Knud. Two hundred of Denmark’s 500 public libraries are “open libraries” — open 24 hours a day, with staffing only about 12 hours a week. If you have a library card, you can open the door. It will open in early 2015. You’re in control of how open they should be.
