Kitchener library refit a triumph

See on Scoop.itCanada’s Technology Triangle Inc.

The new central library — and it feels very new — is a triumph of vision, planning and execution. It honours the purpose of the traditional public library, which is to provide information of all sorts to the community, while recognizing that new technologies have profoundly transformed the means of delivering this information

Canada’s Technology Triangle Inc.‘s insight:

This is the biggest, most contemporary public library you’ll find in this part of Ontario. But it is also a cultural and community centre. It is a gathering place. It is a school. It is an oasis of thought in the heart of a city where people are sometimes too busy to slow down and contemplate life.
