How can the public library fulfil its classic social mission in our individualised and sometimes fragmented society? And how does such a library fit into the urban public space, in which commerce and consumption seem to reign supreme? This requires innovative architecture, the strength of imagination and the willingness to think countercyclically. In 'Imagination and Participation' librarians Rob Bruijnzeels and Joyce Sternheim examine the most important transitions in public library work. With insight from experts and top Dutch architects who have designed public libraries in the Netherlands and abroad.
