Muungano is a design group from Sweden that has received the Swedish Library Bus of the Year award for this moving library.

The library on wheels, which is located at the Swedish town of Kiruna, "incorporates a library, small cinema, computer games, a sofa for listening to music and Internet access," according to Dezeen.

The colorful and attractive bus was designed by Peter Thuvander and Martin Hedenström.

Implications - The bus combines new digital media along with traditional materials such as paper-back books. The bus was built for people to enjoy themselves, communicate with others on the Internet and meet with different people within society. The interior is definitely jazzed up and looks like a cozy and comfortable learning and communication area.
