The library describes itself as follows: "A multimedia 'give-get' library works on the basis that those who access it also contribute to it. By harnessing our community's knowledge, expertise and know-how through the provision of local publishing and editing facilities, we hope to grow as a community and increase both our individual and our collective potential."
This combination of library/hacklab/archive is particularly interesting as it redefines the concept of a library as more than just a repository of books, but rather as a repository of knowledge. We look forward to hearing more from the project as it develops. To find out more about the St Botolph's initiative and its Give-Get Library, follow this link.
