This is mainly deduced by Oldenburg’s concept regarding the third place and by Gehl’s concept of the low-intensive social sites.
In addition we will divide and evaluate the users into the following three categories: The drive-in user, the workaholic and finally the library-enthusiast. These categories will be considered in context with the ideal users for the partly staff-less public libraries.
The corresponding discussion for this investigation will reflect on which rationalities of cultural politics should be implemented, as the objectives for desired achievements towards the institutional surroundings.
We conclude that the partly staff-less public libraries are able to provide activities as a third place, through the setup of the environmental interior of the library. In addition, this can be optimized further by providing the physical interior with a design that appears calm, accessible and as an attractive social site.
The conclusion provides suggestions to how the staff can share their knowledge with the users through placing proper written guidance in fairly visible areas during unmanned library hours.
Lastly, we were able to reveal an indication of satisfaction amongst most of the users in the survey.
