The Subway Libraries

Here’s a link to download an article on The Subway Libraries, my concept to develop a new type of library sited within subway stations.  Subways and Libraries have much in common: both are democratizing agencies, they have similar cultures of cards and turnstiles, train cars (and airplanes) are our contemporary reading rooms, and reading has always been a form of travel itself. Bringing the two institutions together creates a new kind of library that integrates information, services, and space and creates a new kind of publishing platform.
