This is awesome. So inspiring to hear this fresh thinking. What a wonderful mix of tradition - happy 141st LA libraries! - and modernity. Love thinking about how libraries can be designed as intentional, multi-faceted learning and community centers to help spur job skills training, coding / computer literacy, numeracy, and generally be a service to the community. Two important features to me are 1. super fast wi-fi and 2. longer hours. i wonder if there are any 24 hr libraries, and though it's not necessary for them to be open that much, it would be a cool concept, and I think the public might be willing to pay for it or there could be private sector partnerships. I'd settle for it being open until 10pm but think there is huge opportunity in making libraries open after normal work hours. I love the library but can rarely make it there when open.
Cheers and good luck!
