The "Plaza" offers open zones for group work, various individual workplaces for concentrated working and learning, so-called "carrels" for having an exchange in quieter surroundings and a lounge area for communication and recreation. The complete area of the "Plaza" is equipped with WLAN and fulfils the requirements of modern library design concepts.
Dr. Klaus Ceynowa, Director General of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek: "In the digital age in particular, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek is strongly sought after as a place for learning, working and communicating. This involves both concentrated individual work in our frequently overcrowded reading rooms and group work and professional exchange. Our new "Plaza" has been custom-tailored for the latter purpose in particular."
Dr. Dorothea Sommer, Deputy Director General: "The new user area is designed to offer the visitors of the Staatsbibliothek a further attractive place to stay, where they feel inspired and welcome."
