Customized elements have created the opportunity for display of knowledge in new and innovative ways that inspire all age groups to seek new knowledge, be creative and wonder. The library has been designed with specific attention to supporting knowledge sharing between students and citizens in Løkken, while benefitting from the synergy between the school, the local historical archives and the local culture house in Løkken. The new library is a place that invites people to meet and share knowledge and a place where young adults can help the oldest citizens with IT and the librarian can give students a helping hand with their homework.

The project came about because the library needed to reinvent itself and decided to follow the guidelines of ’the Modelprogram for Public Libraries’ suggesting a move from Collection to Connection in the wake of digitalization. But also because the library board wanted to benefit from the synergies that arise when the local library and culture house move into the local school buildings.

In the future citizens of Løkken will be able to delve into new topics in the Ocean’s calm surroundings, while students from the school do their homework in the Garden. Older citizens, children and teachers can take part in workshops in the Workshop as part of the school curriculum, or as part of the municipal activity program. The Town Square is the local gathering point with room for ‘reading aloud’, public exhibition of local produce or lectures, while the youngest children hang out in the Sand dunes on iPads or Laptops.
