Bright ideas from bright young people

On 29th November 2012 members of the two groups of multi-disciplinary students from the MA course at the Royal College of Art presented their response to a question set by Friends of Tate South Lambeth Library:

How can the library attract, and be attractive to, more local people?

Over a three-day period at the end of October the two groups visited the library and met representatives of TSL service providers such as Digital Tuesdays ® (DTVIP & Digital Bazaar) and St Stephen’s Children’s Centre (Parent & Toddler groups) and a cross-section of the local community.

The November 29th meeting picked up on the major recommendations by the two groups. You can see videos of the full presentations, made at the RCA on 1st November 2012 below. Have a look. There are some great ideas.
