Cologne City Library
Tinker and Try - What does the Cologne Public Library have to do with making knowledge cool?
What is a library’s core strength? Only providing information? In the context of digitization, the challenge for libraries lies elsewhere — in making knowledge available! The dissemination of this rapidly growing resource is our way of safeguarding the future. In the face of technological and social upheaval, libraries are places of reorientation and relaxation – so called “Third Places”. The essence is future-oriented service offerings that primarily encourage doing and rely on the active participation of citizens. The facilitator will talk about the innovative experiences in Cologne.
