Stuttgart Public Library on May 9, 2015

 

At 1 pm last Saturday, May 9th, a group of women met in the HERZ of the new and worldwide recommended public library in Stuttgart. Frau Inka Jessen, a local librarian, explained the concept of the new architectural highlight of Stuttgart and showed the group around on the 8 floors which host the different areas of a library like children, life science or literature.
Especially impressive is the Music floor with a Klangstudio where users can compose music or play the Silent Piano.
Or the ‘Library for the Sleepless’ where books are available to lend 24/7…
With the local library card one of the lockers can be opened and the book inside can be taken home. The system saves the information as a regular check out and the book has to be returned after the 4 week loan period to the regular check in machines.

The Graphothek is  located on the 8th floor, where users can get framed graphics to take home and decorate their private rooms.
With several renewal periods, the artwork can stay for up to 1 year – then it’s time for redecorating and picking a new design for the walls.

On each floor there are several lockers filled with laptops and other technical devices which can be opened with a library card and  used that day in the library.
It was a very informative and fun trip, we returned to Augsburg with lots of wonderful impressions and new ideas.
