The Library's Dead, Long Live The Library

BY PAM SALIBA
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 07, 2014

Pam Saliba has a particular passion for all the contents that libraries possess. Unfortunately, often libraries can be viewed as common book depositories which is not true. Pam names off several examples of the things that libraries have been able to innovate with.

The Tool Librarian

BY JUSTIN MORRISSEY
@ VOL 11 ON FEB 06, 2015

The Blue Mountains Tool Library or "Toolo" is a lending library for tools and equipment that services the needs of various community interests.
Initially we are seeking interested organisations to auspice the project - translation - why would we need to set up another not for profit organisation in the mountains when there are probably 100s up here already whose operations could extend to embrace a tool library. The library hopes to have a small functional space/ shipping container and fixed operating hours - several days a week. The library's main purpose is to hire tools to assist people who would ordinarily use these tools once or twice per year and not regularly enough to warrant buying them.
Members would be people trying to maintain properties prior to peak fir season, artists who need tools for one off projects and generally anyone who don't want to buy a tool and use it once.

New York: City on a Grid

BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 04, 2015

Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”

Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!

Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

The Story of Buffalo BookBike

BY AMY OZAY
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

“We need to bring the fun back to reading, and rolling up with a book bike might be a way to do that.” 

In The Story of Buffalo BookBike from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Founder of Buffalo BookBike in Buffalo, NY, Amy Ozay, talks about her love of Buffalo, books, and bikes. Taking inspiration from similar programs in other cities, she launched Buffalo BookBike in 2015, which gives free books to the children of Buffalo in parks and playgrounds throughout the summer months. The BookBike has given away over 1,000 books to date, with the hopes of slowing down the summer slide. Her dream is to increase the reach of the BookBike, foster more collaboration between local literacy organizations, and help convert Buffalo parks to open air libraries in the future. As Cicero wrote, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

Who is the other? The Living Library

BY CRISTINA MANCIGOTTI
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Identities can create barriers, instil a feeling of fear and lead us to act in different ways. Or they can spark curiosity and make us eager to understand different perceptions and realities. Cristina Mancigotti talks about projects she has been involved across Europe (Italy, Hungary, France) which foster dialogue, such as the Living Library.

@ VOL 33 ON AUG 27, 2017

"When I say, 'library' you think 'books'," begins Wendy Cornelisen's PK talk. Do you think about books when you think about libraries? Well, Wendy's talk disavows you of the notion that libraries are only about books. How about music? Free movies? FISHING RODS! Wendy works with the State's Public Library system which supports all of the public libraries here in the state of Georiga.

Magazine Library, Print Culture, and Manizales' Poster Promotions

We're experimenting with this new post format again, trying to give you more bang for your buck in terms of offering a daily snapshot of what's happening in the world of PechaKucha, and trying to save you from the endless streams of feed notifications that seem to clutter our lives. Presentations As we recently covered on the blog, we had a special PechaKucha event this past Friday here in Tokyo, as part of the 10th edition of the Magazine Library exhibition. We invited 5 presenters to cover topics that touch on magazines and print culture, and we'll be sharing all of them online today and tomorrow. Today, you get to hear Audrey Fondecave talk about the upcoming issue of TOO MUCH ("the magazine of romantic geography"), Mike Abelson talk about his stationery brand Postalco, and a recent printing project he embarked on, and Luis Mendo tells us how Tokyo turned this editorial designer into an artist.

More Magazine Library, a 3000-seat Venue for Koszalin, and a 'Raucous' Night in Nishinomiya

Let's take a look at what's happening in PechaKucha today. Presentations As we promised yesterday, we continue to share presentations from last Friday's special PechaKucha event at the Magazine Library exhibition. Today you can hear Antonin Gaultier talk about his new digital Tokyo fashion magazine, De Rigueur (available for Kindle), and Tokyo-based designer Ian Lynam shares some of the magazine titles that have had a big impact on him. Posters Two new posters today on our Tumblr blog, starting with the one (above) for the upcoming PKN Koszalin Vol. 9 (on May 25). You see a piece of the amazing venue where it will be held in it, and below, a better look. You'll also find the beautifully illustrated poster for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16. It's the Koszalin Amphitheatre, and it can hold 3000 spectators -- that's PKN Tel Aviv territory! Events We of course have a few new galleries of event photos to point out, and the photo above is an oldie but goodie, from PKN Beirut Vol. 8 (the most recent event in that city was last week's Vol. 14).PKN Ferrol Vol. 7 -- you'll also find a video of the entire evening A special event in the town of Skorping, organized by PKN Aalborg's Annette Scheibel (photos by Mathies Brinkmann) [Flickr]PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]Here we have a report from PKN Nishinomiya organizer Brent Jones on the city's recent PKN Vol. 12:Friday, April 13 (that's right . . . Friday the 13th) was another raucous night of creativity and fun at CUBE in Nishinomiya. We continue to attract an eclectic mix of presenters, and this beautiful Spring night was no exception. We started the evening by showing Mark Dytham’s PechaKucha Global Events presentation from the PKN website. We explained to the audience that we are locked into our set events (because our venue is a school), but that we try to promote these events as much as we can. Our first live presenter was Teruko Ashida, who introduced her organic fruit farm in Amagasaki and the events she holds there. Peter Sterlacci followed up with a lively introduction to Personal Branding. Shuji Narita came next with a humorous look at common English mistakes made by Japanese, and he was followed by Carmen Tamas and Shawn White swapping musings about the charms of Japan and Romania. Our Beer Break was followed by a PKN formatted workshop on Old School Hip Hop by Warren Decker. Natsuko Shiraishi then introduced her work with groups of indigenous Mangyan on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The audience was then treated to the trials and tribulations of learning how to scull by Richard Miller, and Wes Lang rounded out the night with a poetic look at Unkai, or the sea of clouds that can be viewed from various summits in Japan. We again enlisted the help of several students in introducing the presenters and keeping the evening full of unexpected twists and turns, and are already looking forward to PKN Nishinomiya Volume 13 on July 6th.Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, tonight (May 15) you can look forward to PKN Helsingborg Vol. 8, and then tomorrow night (May 16) Wagga Wagga will be hosting its PKN Vol. 6.

The Tool Librarian

"I love tools." In The Tool Librarian from Blue Mountains Vol. 11. Justin Morrissey proposes the idea of "Toolo," a lending library for tools and equipment that services the needs of various community interests.  The library hopes to have a small functional space where visiting members, who wouldn't use a particular tool frequently enough to warrant purchasing it, can not only borrow it from the tool library, but also receive assistance from experts on how to best use it. What a brilliant idea! Time to get your library card!
