  • 5. “Traditionally, libraries also suffer from an image problem. Hordes of books coupled with the 'sshhhh' factor doesn't make for a very cool environment. By installing colorful interiors such as oversized book sleeves, a learning space such as the library is transformed into an area which kids see as cool, and therefore are inspired to read and learn.” KOOL KIDS SPACES, October 5 2006 http://www.thecoolhunter.com.au/article/detail/737/kool-kids-spaces
  • 6. Generational change “…is radical change that occurs in an organisation or a population as a result of its members being replaced over time by other individuals with different values or other characteristics.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generational_change

In an organisation, the unspoken cultural values held by the longer serving members may be challenged, threatened or abandoned by newer members. In an ecological system, generational change of the representatives of one species may threaten the survival of other species.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generational_change
