Project Of The Week : Libraries and book stores
Libraries are repositories of information, places of learning and of research. One of the ancient libraries, the Library of Alexandria is credited with comparing different versions of books with empirical standards which became the beginnings of the scientific method. Libraries are filled with adventures of discovery wrapped in layers of shush. Book stores are another source for book-learning, though the brick and mortar versions are dwindling in some places.
The Project of the Week is to add local libraries and book stores to the map.

A kerb (American English curb) is the edge where a road meets a sidewalk=*. As these are transition points between different surfaces and/or elevations, the locations of kerbs are important features to pedestrians, cyclists, and especially to those with reduced mobility (e.g. in wheelchairs).

Aerodrome Rendering + RFC
Currently small and big aerodromes are rendered the same at low zoom levels. Thus it's impossible to distinguish them and the map looks rather cluttered up (Example). During the discussion on the mailing list a mapper mentioned an old proposal which could resolve the issue.
