Literary Hub tipped us off to two futuristic libraries on separate sides of the world.
The one in Haikou, China, is traditional in the sense that it’s physical, but its design is unconventional.
The shape, according to Lit Hub, is meant to evoke clouds and the sea, with circular windows all over for adults and holes for children to crawl through while playing.
Meanwhile, in Rome, the newest library is virtual — anyone using the public transit system can use a QR code to open up the catalogue and download digital reading material.
There are no checkout limits, and the material comes from all over the world and across all genres.
Learn more about the new libraries in Haikou and Rome from Lit Hub.
