In autumn 2014, RSLYA launched Project Library Planet, which celebrates colourful modern libraries that cater to a young audience. Our specialists visit especially interesting libraries of the world and make short videos about them.
Our goals is to show librarians and readers alike the best practices from different countries, the best modern libraries, how they work with their communities, what resources and opportunities they give for education, communication, work, self-development and self-expression. Many people still think of libraries as dusty, boring spaces. Project Library Planet challenges this vision, inspires positive change in libraries, and motivates young volunteers, readers and creative young people to engage with libraries.
The first Library Planet videos explore two wonderful libraries in Denmark: Aalborg Public Library and Underground Library Kolding for young adults. German and Swedish libraries will be next. Follow the RSLYA YouTube channel for updates.
