WOW! Library innovation is alive and kicking! Across the world people naturally make strong associations between books and libraries. However, providing the community with new and innovative programmes, new gathering spaces and offering access to technology are what is changing perceptions and for many it is often securing funding. There are many example that show libraries are much more than books alone we have chosen just a few!
We want to help spread best practice in library innovation, and in meeting new digital age demands. We believe libraries are crucial in addressing information challenges and creating opportunities for communities to engage with information, new ideas and each other. More than ever, we are hearing from libraries that community engagement is a high priority.
The Solus team are always amazed at the innovative work we see going on in libraries across the world. We share a lot of that news on our twitter and linkedin feeds, but just in case you missed it we thought we’d summarise some of those snippets here.
