Library Planet

For library lovers around the globe, Library Planet is a new project that seeks to offer "a crowdsourced Lonely Planet for Libraries" and to "inspire library travelers." Library Planet was founded by two Danish librarians, Christian Lauersen and Marie Engberg Eiriksson, and welcomes writing contributions from anyone. As of this write-up, the project features libraries in Denmark, China, the Netherlands, Portugal, Thailand, and the United Kingdom. Visitors can explore these featured libraries on the site's homepage or via the Map of libraries tab. Each featured library is accompanied by a short write-up and numerous photographs. One featured library is the Shanghai Library, which is home to a number of ancient manuscripts as well as a state-of-the-art "Innovation Space." Also featured is the National Centre for the Written Word, a library in northeast England that aims to "transform a visitor's perception of what a library can be." Here, visitors will find storytelling and performances spaces, as well as multi-media labs and a gaming zone.
