I truly hope that libraries will be around forever, despite advances with technology. Helping our children to love the library is key in this of course, and I'm grateful that many libraries the world over are revamping their children's sections into places where they will actually want to spend time. (Although I must say, I resent when there are computers in the children's area! Get them away from the screen and into books! Trust me, they will pick the computer every time and in my opinion, that defeats the whole purpose of trying to get them reading!) Ok, I'm off the soap box now. :) I'm super impressed with this library at a children's primary school in Amsterdam, designed by Dave Keune. Dave has created some pretty amazing products and furniture for children (see here and here) and I'm glad they picked him to do this project. The spiral design draws you in and the shelves are arranged by age: older kids can find things to read on higher shelves, the younger ones can reach the lower ones. The simple wooden construction make the colorful books stand out and there is even a cozy reading corner incorporated into the design. I love it all!
