Save The Libraries

While British and American libraries are up-against draconian budget cuts and outright closures, some forward thinking nations are actually investing in their intellectual futures with inspirational new libraries.

The Austrian National Library is planning a truly 21st century learning space with a fabulous new addition designed by architect Chris Precht. When it’s completed, the library’s rich collections will move from the 18th century Hofburg palace to a dramatic underground space.

Please note that today is Save Our Libraries day throughout the UK.
