To build a library as a vital third place, it is tempting to copy results of a cool project. Well, you should not. Instead, consider copying processes and develop your own. The Butterfly Principles of Design For Programmability, a method developed by Aat Vos, reveals interdisciplinary conditions for librarians to create successful projects. Vos learned that designing the physical space is not enough to ignite a vivid library. He is sharing what he learned over years in a simple model that will help librarians when it comes to creating libraries that are ready to fly when they open. Anja Flicker, working with Aat Vos since 2016 to create a new branch library in Würzburg/Germany, shares experiences and learnings from the ongoing project.
The session will touch all elements of the Butterfly Principles of Design for Programmability. After an introduction, to turn theory into practice, audience participation is required to set up the ideal third place following the Butterfly Principles. A true learning experience!
