What’s a library to you?

Libraries are a very tactile place. A place where you walk between racks and corridors filled with books, looking for that certain book, or where you just get inspired by book covers or carefully curated collections. A library is place of knowledge, life lessons, great thinkers and writers and possibilities.

What’s the single most essential thing you need in your everyday work?

My phone. To check our social accounts, to play music, but most important: to take pictures and videos of everything.

What was the most memorable experience you ever had in a library?

The most memorable experience for me is the feeling when I walk through the corridors. It’s a kind of excitement, because there is still so much to read, to learn and to discover. I have to contain myself and try to not bring home a new stack of books every time I go to the office.
