A unique place has opened in the Śródmieście district of Warsaw – a library where you can bake a cake, spend free time with your neighbors, listen to music, play on the console or board games. “We are destroying the biggest myth about libraries – we don’t have to be completely silent,” said Alexander Ferenc, mayor of the district.
Mediatheque opened on June 23 at 55/73 Marszałkowska Street, in the former “Shanghai” restaurant, because this unusual space has such a place. The name of the place refers to the residential district of Marszałkowska, and the abbreviation MDM means place of good appearances.
Mediatheque as a manifestation of the desire to collaborate
– Our goal was never to open another rental store. The media library was supposed to be something unique, far beyond the functionality of a traditional library. We wanted to create a lively place, open to all and inclusive for residents, regardless of differences. We show our desire to collaborate, spend time together, and enjoy different forms of culture together. This was not only missing during the pandemic. I am proud to announce that Mediateka is ready and filled to the brim. Now we invite everyone to visit us and create this place with us – said Alexander Ferenc, mayor of Śródmieście.
