Hjorring Public Library in Denmark

This library incorporates some incredibly cool ideas for a public library. If nothing else, the design is fantastic. The red “ribbon” is eye-catching, and who doesn’t love a library that has a slide? My favorite part, though, is the pre-shelving area where patrons check in their own items and pre-shelve them, thus giving them some knowledge of and stake in their library while also allowing them (and other patrons) to browse what other people are reading.
