Robi Mobile Library, Germany

The Robi Mobile Library, designed by Linie Zweii, allows children to access books when a traditional brick-and-mortar library isn’t available. This concept could easily be adapted for the U.S. public school system. When the government cuts funding, activities that create well-rounded, healthy children are the first to go, like recess, lunch, and libraries. It would be better to browse a library once a week than not at all.

A library on wheels could circulate to schools, churches, parks, the YMCA… it could operate on a schedule much like a food truck, but with a membership. Book returns could be installed at those locations so children can return books 24/7 to keep continuous circulation.
