Peter Thuvander has been in touch to tell us about a new project he’s been working on with Martin Hedenström. They got the chance to design a library bus for the northern town of Kiruna. As it happens it´s now done. And they have won the prize ´Library bus of the year´ given by the Swedish librarian society.
Peter tells us, “The function of the new bus is to supply a larger service, where new digital media is presented as well as traditional printed material. Except from distributing media the bus will also function as a place for people to communicate on the web and enable meetings between different groups in the society. Because of the lack of sunlight during most of the year in the north the bus will be like a lantern when dark to attract people and light up the surroundings. The bus includes a library, a small cinema, computer games, a music listening couch, internet station and personal service.”
