25 Modern #libraries from around the world by Ebook Friendly


Libraries are doing well in digital times. Here are most awesome examples. Many people, when asked about libraries, imagine old buildings with dimmed light and endless rows of heavy wooden bookshelves. Libraries are our heritage. They contain all knowledge human kind has acquired. They have to be like that… or maybe not. Libraries are the avant-garde of civilization. They have to evolve, and look into the future, not only the past.

Modern libraries (and the futuristic building is not a must to make a library modern) are shaping the way we learn things and enjoy books in the digital age. They offer access to books in every possible form and format. The purpose of this post is to encourage you to visit the library near you. You won’t probably have a chance to go to Singapore and visit Bishan Public Library. On the other side, that library on your street will also welcome you – with a magic of books and the charm of the librarian. Some of the libraries on the list are obvious, naming only Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library or Yale University Beinecke Rare Book Library. However, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time to dig fantastic libraries in other countries, as well. As you will see, libraries around the world are heading into the future, creating for their patrons a more dynamic, multi-level environment for learning and pleasure.
