A trend in today’s literature is that it takes place outside the framework of the book. We experience it on the internet as digital/electronic literature, hear it beep into our mobile phones, pass it on the streets as street art, download it as apps, and experience it mixed with other art and mediums, such as music. These new forms of literature challenge the library in new ways, but they also open up a long range of exciting possibilities – literature must be re-thought. At The Literature Spot at Aaby Library, the new forms of literature have been explored and staged for some time. Serena Borsello will tell you about her work with the Literature Spot and its role in creating a space for these new forms of literature in today’s library.
Gellerup Library is much more than your average branch library. The library is situated in a multicultural area and the building contains not only a library but also a healthcare center, the guidance service Folkeinformation, a job corner, the Brabrand-Årslev Local History Archive and the homework help service ”Tusindfryd”(Daisy). All together, these services and facilities make up the Community Center Gellerup whose goal is to provide citizens with information and knowledge about Danish society. Bente Kjærgaard and Lone Hedelund will tell you more about Community Center Gellerup.
The trip will end with a visit to Risskov Library where Annette Harlis Thorgaard will tell you about the DYRK-project. DYRK - which can be translated into “grow” or “cultivate” – was in-spired by Risskov Library’s garden and is a project based on sustainability, general education and empowerment. Young people and the library have worked together to create an experimental outdoor makerspace including an urban garden, the ’before I die’ wall and an open air library.
