Little Free Library. Rick Brooks and Todd Bol are the cofounders of the nonprofit Little Free Library. In 2009, they began fabricating and installing little libraries around Madison, WI. The libraries are essentially a nicely designed, weatherproof hutch mounted on poles, which contain a collection of about 20 books and a sign that reads "Take a Book, Leave a Book." What a great way to enhance your neighborhood and create community! www.littlefreelibrary.org
Alberto Kalach, de architect van de Bibliotheek Vasconcelos in Mexico-stad, was vastberaden een spectaculaire openbare ruimte te ontwerpen. Volgens hem zou de bibliotheek zo een groter publiek trekken.
