Why Ottawa (and your city) should have a GREAT downtown library building
We are building a new library in Ottawa - hopefully not just another office building with shelves. Why?

- •Because learning should be inspiring in its physical space as well as in what you find there. It matters.Akita International Univ Library, Japan
- •Because any building that the city creates and we all pay for should add to the design of and contribute to the value of the city as a whole.(I want to read up there!)
- •Because children.Also Ying Yang Library, from Designboom. South Korea.
- •Because lifelong learning IS life. For everyone.Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - a great new library.
- •Because Starbucks is too crowded to work in now. (Or Bridgehead, or insert-your-favourite-coffee-shop-here.). And libraries HAVE coffee shops now!Image from littlecupofrandom.com.
