In this session, we aim to tackle the challenges posed by the rise of technology and access to information anytime-anywhere that public libraries are facing today by exploring how place and activity focused digital library services can support the transformation of libraries to third spaces. We will demonstrate and try out a new digital library service, PARTICIPATE, that is currently being developed and deployed in Sweden, Denmark and France. PARTICIPATE is a mean to investigate how we together with library partners can engage patrons in new ways in the events taking place at the library. This includes supporting the organizers of events in the planning, execution, documentation and archiving of knowledge co-created in the event. In the workshop we will re-design events taking place at the library, while discussing the new role of libraries as event makers and how the local community can help create, share and access knowledge.
