Library / Biblioteka

Co to za archetyp

The library is a very special place from the very beginning of our culture. It is a great equalizer, every person able to read can have access to the knowledge which once was being cut away and locked in the guilds. This is why the motive of a library is not to “hide”, it is to spread the knowledge and answer questions. It is also a place of socializing and a place of stories, beautiful and scary. A good library is a central hub of knowledge – not only the most recent one or most specialized one; it will contain the information which wants to actually be free and to be spread.

This motive is slightly internally conflicted; information wants to be free, but some information is dangerous. Library is a place of socializing, yet you need to remain silent over there. It provides news and information, yet it is never the most recent one. It is a great equalizer for people able to learn and wanting to learn, yet the more money you have the less you need libraries. Libraries are usually the enemies of authoritarians.
