  • 21st Century Libraries

    We get a lot of questions about the future of libraries. One of the more common questions is, "Why do we need libraries when the trend is away from the printed page?" Libraries aren't just about books; instead they're about what you do with the knowledge you acquire through resources like books. Libraries have always changed, as we will continue to evolve as the changing nature of acquiring and sharing information provides many exciting opportunities for libraries and communities.

    In the past, library spaces revolved around books and objects. Furniture was substantial and the focus was on the storage of physical resources. Today's libraries are flexible spaces designed around people, discovery and social interaction. Today's libraries also focus on measuring success through meaningful impact, rather than simply the output numbers libraries have relied on in the past.

    So what does this modern library look like?
