Kreuzberg: Landesbibliothek boss: Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek is overloaded – Berlin

Sunday, February 11th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


The fact that the America Memorial Library (AGB) is overcrowded, is already a glance: At the work tables, which are intended for two users, sitting four people. And readers are also sitting on the windowsills and the floor of the cafeteria. Because the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek (ZLB) is reaching its limits in existing rooms, ZLB board member Volker Heller called for a swift Senate decision on Thursday to build a new building. "The America Memorial Library was originally planned for 500 visitors a day. On Saturdays, we had an average of 4,300 visitors in 2017. "Further growth is hardly bearable simply because of the sanitary facilities and ventilation," said Heller. For a long time, the ZLB, which is currently spread over two locations, is to be merged into a large new building. The plans for a location on the Tempelhof field had to be shelved after the referendum in 2014, however. In 2016, feasibility studies suggested either expanding the memorial library at Hallesches Tor or building a new building on the site of the Marx-Engels Forum in Mitte. "Now politics must finally decide," said Heller. Decision about location maybe even 2018 Senator of Culture Klaus Lederer (left) showed on request of the Tagesspiegel understanding for Heller demand. However, the Senate had agreed "that in the course of the legislature on a location is decided." Possibly, there will be a decision by the end of the year. For the time being, however, Heller and his employees will have to cope with the onslaught in the existing structures. That's another reason why the America Memorial Library has been open on Sundays since September 2017. Above all, however, there is room for more visitors at ZLB's second location, in the Berlin city library on Breitestra├če. Because while the AGB visit on average around 3000 people per day, come to the city library only about 1200 visitors, although the ZLB there is more space available. "By redesigning the cafeteria and opening the courtyard, we have been trying to make the city library more attractive," said Public Service Director Jonas Fansa. "But just because of the poor transport links, we come up against limits." Another idea: E-Government in the library Heller and his team not only have to cope with the shortage of space, but also adjust to the digitization and a changed user behavior. The ZLB should remain a place of knowledge acquisition and at the same time become a forum for urban society, said Heller. At computer terminals, ZLB employees could – in the future – help users with digital administrative transactions. ZLB has recently massively expanded its own digital offerings. Users can borrow non-fiction and fiction as e-books, stream 650 movies and read 5000 newspapers digitally. And all for an annual fee of ten euros.
