The intrinsic value of libraries as public spaces
Technology and digital services reflect the changing role of libraries

The library has evolved into a hub around which the community grows, learns and communicates. It provides the space and the intellectual glue to allow communities, close knit urban and sparsely spread rural, to cohere and interact. This report looks at key issues which will need to be addressed to ensure libraries remain a central part of community life. Those issues are:
  • What is the need for libraries in modern society?
  • What is the future role of libraries?
  • How library spaces are evolving?
  • The increasing role of technology in libraries
  • Libraries and the provision of public spaces
