thought for the day. . libraries are not just an institution but a pheonomenon in society

The Leeds Library is the oldest subscription library in the UK, could this form a collaboration with the Living+Library?

There as 53 Libraries in Leeds but none are specialist children's ones.

Leeds Central Library currently houses a number of collections which could also be tied into a collaboration with Living+Library archives
  • The Gott Bequest of Early English Gardening Books
  • The Forton Collection of Judaica
  • The Gascoigne Militaria Collection

The four main areas that living library needs to encompass are:

  • Collection - Childrens Literature with Archive Storage for special collections or first editions
  • Current and future use
  • Modes of access to information
  • The future of libraries in a digitalised world
