Mini-library, museum and café – and plenty of cats
A Visionary Society Project
Create a synthesis of a tiny library, museum and cafe, and put it in a mall, big box store, or any commercial or residential street. Librarians select their favorite books. Museums loan special works of art. High quality coffee, tea and other drinks are available.
For simplicity much of the operations may be self-service. Only one person (volunteer or paid) is needed to run the place (we also need a new name for a place that is a synthesis of a business and service). And don't forget the cats!

Project Details
 
Businesses are too commercial. Museums are boring. The purpose of libraries is unclear. Cafes are insensible. Each serve their own purpose within the framework of the establishment. Reinvent their living, active, meaningful role in the community.
