IFLA nominiert "Public Libraries of the Year"

"The nominees are...
One of the five nominated libraries of the year is the Austin Central Library in the USA, for its focus on sustainability, featuring its own energy production and rainwater systems, as well as its high flexibility - in terms of interior design and furniture.
The Villa-Lobos Park Library in Brazil is also nominated. The jury explains this with the bright and open environment of this public library, which makes it an attractive place in which to spend time. In addition, it is highlighted as a very active library, the interior design and architecture of which enable activities of many different types to take place.
KopGroep Bibliotheken (School 7) in the Netherlands is also among the nominees, based on the success of the library in integrating with its surroundings and the cooperation with the local theatre, café and university. Another explanation lies in the interaction between old and new architecture, which harmoniously emphasises the best of both.
The Norwegian public library Deichman Biblo Toyen has been nominated for its extensive user involvement, which is reflected in the interior design. In addition, the library’s efforts for vulnerable young people for whom the library acts as a change agent, in cooperation with local organisations and professional specialists.
The Tampines public library in Singapore has been nominated, too. By facilitating sports and leisure interests, library and citizen services, this library has become a centrepiece for the citizens of Singapore. In addition, the jury emphasises the open space and floors of the library, which are targeted at different age groups."
