Some innovative ideas in the field of library design at the moment, amongst which, these new designs for children's furniture from Opening the Book , which I have managed to get my hands on some photographs of.
The reading tunnel and reading tower are rumoured to be the centrepiece of the design of the children's area in the new Swansea Central Library and are causing some debate here in library land.
"It's a library, not a playground!" remarked one erstwhile librarian, while another spoke grandiosely of "interactive reading adventures".
Personally I'm just sorry I'm not small enough to enjoy them myself as I think they look rather fun.
So, what do you think?
