The library is regarded as one such place where people, emotions and culture meet together through different methods. Most importantly, the historical significance also had socio economic, demographic and cultural impacts (Callahan, 2006). The architecture is special for the reason that it evokes anyone who visits to inculcate the habit of reading books and also it is accessible. The high accessibility applies to all the sections and it preserves the community through this habit. Based on the learning, it is also evident that this library stands as a way to promote cultural heritage and prevent social exclusion in the society (MacDonald, 1993). The current physical description is given through a range of pictures to explain the architecture and innovative thinking by the architects.
This space is called as the civic square and it has been inspired by European public square. This remains at the centre of various blocks and is the common point where office workers meet and public also gather for cultural events (Muhamad, 2009). The place has a good exposure to nature and accessible to all the blocks. The place adds value to the library and also enhances the public esteem due to its magnificent architecture.
The important cultural elements include identity, public esteem and significance to Tangata Whenua. The library is still recognized for the heritage associated in its growth and expansion till date.
This picture shows the first house that was booked to create a public library. It happened in 1893 and lasted for some period after which it underwent expansion and revolution. It had a close association with the librarians and readers who have affinity towards books. The Wellington Central Library has captured a place in the history not just for its architecture but also for the growth over the years. The national history still recognizes as it stood as the first public library. This is a heritage place that amplifies the historical values and also connects cultures.
