Living Library

You may not want to leave the design festival, well that’s OK you can stay as long as you like*. We are creating a living/working library equipped with free power and WiFi. Feel free to come and use the shared desk space, comfy areas and a range of design-related books and magazines that will be on offer to read or swap.

10.00 - 17.00 - EVERY DAY - Keiller Centre - FREE

Full Description

Community is extremely important to any Liveable/Loveable city, and the shared working space at our 2017 festival was really popular, so we’ve worked with Roots Furniture and Aymeric Renoud to develop an even better one for 2019. Come and enjoy a custom-built workspace with large shared desks and softer more relaxed areas. We’re adding a range of design-related books and magazines throughout the space this year and we’re also running a design book swap.

Bring along any design book and swap it out for one in the collection. You’ll also have access to free power and WiFi so it’s a great place to come and base yourself for the whole week. If you have design books to donate to our library please contact

*Subject to centre opening hours, offer expires 28 May.
