This paper addresses the public libraries evolution from the conservative concept of collective memory repositories to an updated concept, based on the knowledge reusing process, as the basis for knowledge operationalization, including via digital tools. Due to the increasing expansion of technology at all levels of digital literacy, today, libraries have become - by incorporating modern technologies and by applying the premises of the Service Dominant Logic - spaces for co-creating and actioning renewable knowledge. The main aim of this paper is to demonstrate the uniqueness of public libraries in driving renewable knowledge and to lead LIS users and specialists to consider these spaces as innovative service ecosystems, part of the process of knowledge reform in general and digital literacy in particular, with the support of technology. Starting from exploring the shared knowledge flows in library spaces, the current paper intends to demonstrate the growing role of libraries as a trigger for change, through the continuous symbiosis between users’ needs and modern library services. On the one hand, libraries encompass broad bases of knowledge, skills, networks, resources etc. and allow users explore new areas of knowledge in a participatory and stimulating manner. On the other hand, libraries give users the legitimacy to propose their own value propositions connected to today's increasingly refined digital literacy needs. At the basis of the current article argumentation will stay a sociological research of the Questionnaire type, focus groups and structured interviews with leaders from the public libraries in Romania and Europe.
