  1. Considérée comme un des chefs d’oeuvre de l’architecture Art Déco américain, la bibliothèque centrale de Brooklyn a été complétée en 1940. Située au Grand Army Plaza, elle accueille plus d’un million de visiteurs chaque année et, comme on peut le voir sur la photo, un marché public le samedi. La Blyn Public Library abrite plus d’un million de livres, magazines et documents multimédia.

    En janvier 2013, un espace laboratoire de grande envergure, The Shelby White & Leon Levy Information Commons, y a été déployé :

    «The Info Commons consists of the main workspace, a training lab, and seven reservable meeting rooms, one of which is set up as a recording studio for video and audio projects. The workspace offers PC and Mac desktop computers with a number of creative software programs, plus lots and lots of outlets for laptop users. The meeting rooms can be used by patrons for gatherings not limited to study groups, book discussions, and meetings, and we’ve also moved some library-led programming into them, such as one-on-one resume help and language conversation groups…The lab hosts classes and other events, including a roster of digital media workshops led by the local organization BRIC Arts | Media | Bklyn»

  3. Bibliothèque 2020 : La culture des makerspaces.

    Kristin Fontichiaro in Library 2020. Today’s Leading Visionaries Describe Tomorrow’s Library. Edité par Joseph Janes. Lantham: Scarecrow Press, 2013. Page 12.

    [Extrait]

    «In this short space, we’ve drawn parallels between the growing popularity of makerspace culture and the metaphorical potential it holds for rethinking libraries in the post-e-book era. 

    Am I advocating that libraries become woodshop spaces, buzzing with drill presses and lathes, slathered in sawdust? No. (…)

    But should libraries continue the decades-long transformation from being places that host stuff to places that host experiences? Absolutely. We have had knitting clubs and sewing groups in our libraries for some time now without being accused that such social hobbies are taking down the library-as-institution. If we allow knitting needles into our libraries, surely we want to extend similar privileges for all hobbyists so we do not accidentally create library programming that merely mirrors our interests. Many libraries are looking into becoming actual small-scale makerspaces, purchasing 3-D printers for drop in use and holding workshops on using 3-D microcontrolers. These activities have a small footprint that brings new partners and new patrons into the library.  They are valuable, low cost additions to a library’s budget. For example, an Arduino microcontroller costs around $25, and a Raspberry Pi microcomputer costs around $35, very close to the price of a single library book! Who needs to feel an ownership in our physical space so they vote yes for the next millage? Who is our untapped community?

    But it’s more than makerspace stuff. It’s about ambiance. A makerspace culture has the potential to do much more by inspiring libraries to envision themselves as places where all citizens feel welcome bringing their individual visions of creating and sharing. When librarians embrace each patrons as a creator of his or her own future and themselves as partners in that future, an incredible synchronicity is ignited.

    I can’t wait for 2020.»

     
     
  4. "The online sharing of culture and knowledge is the greatest public library ever invented, and the ability for all humankind to take part of all culture and knowledge 24/7 is arguably one of the largest steps of civilization of this century. All the technology has already been invented, all the tools have already been deployed, the ability to use it has already spread to all of humanity: nobody needs to spend a dime to make this happen. All we have to do is to lift the stupid ban on actually using it. (Public Libraries Show Why Sharing Culture Should Never Have Been Banned in the First Place)"
     
     
  5. La Bibliothèque du Boisé à Montréal, comme en Scandinavie et même mieux? __ 1ère partie.

    Il y a la confiance dans la matière, la vérité du bois, la maîtrise de la lumière, le raffinement du parcours, le geste ouvert, l’amour de la lecture et des gens, la bibliothèque nouvellement inaugurée dans l’arrondissement de St-Laurent défie les mythiques architectures scandinaves.

  7. Je me suis exclamé à mon interlocutrice : « Cette bibliothèque publique est simplement magnifique, c’est un des secrets les mieux gardés de Montréal. » Celle-ci m’a souri et m’a répondu dans un français excellent : « Oui, un des secrets les mieux gardés de Westmount. » 

    Ouverte en 1899, la bibliothèque publique de Westmount est la première de Montréal Westmount. Elle a été créé dans l’esprit du Public Library Movement qui signifiait essentiellement : « Free books for all ».

    Ce lieu possède un charme ineffable que les agrandissements ultérieurs, notamment ceux conçus par l’architecte Pete Rose dans les années 90, n’ont pas altéré, au contraire. Il faut voir la serre, The Green House, et le parc.

    En 2010, elle a remporté le prix Aménagement par l’organisme Les Arts et la Ville pour son jardin du conte.

    La bibliothèque des enfants a célébré ses 100 ans en 2011.
