The project of renovation of Kyiv libraries as a space of equality for opportunities and center for communication between different age groups.
The services of the proposed renovated library are more outspread than the services of the existing one. The existing library is only allowed to serve the readers of school age and sometimes arrange different event that are actually quite popular among its audience. The proposed library will continue to serve as a library, but for all age groups. In addition to this it will serve as a bookstore, as a cafe, as a co-working space and as an educational center for children. It will continue to host events, but will open its doors to the curator of the public program. At the same time, the services of bookstore, cafe and co-working place will allow the library to become more independent from the government and to have its own budget for the real needs, not stated in the law.
