A unique future place

Amsterdam Library I talk quite a lot about digital and electronic developments in the future of libraries, but equally key is the future role of libraries as a space and in communty, information, inclusion, culture and the arts.

The library of the future will be a unique destination with an offer that can’t be provide by any other organisation. A safe, third place for learning, culture, heritage and information. A modern, inviting place to relax and enjoy coffee and the unique atmosphere from cradle to the grave.

A business hub and an employability and skills haven for young people. A place for people to learn the ICT skills they need

On August 17th in the Edinburgh Festival at the Central Library  Makmed the Miller presents The Grief of Isis and Peter Barratt talks about Alice Hawkins, the life of a suffragette.
