Re-evaluating Existing Library Spaces and Furnishings on a Budget
April 19, 2017,
2:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. CT
Libraries that cannot afford to expand or have buildings that are landlocked are faced with multiple obstacles when it comes to improving library services and creating the types of spaces customers are demanding.
During this webinar, you’ll learn how to take an objective look at your library to reimagine your spaces. Interior designer Stephanie Shook will demonstrate methods for evaluating your existing building and furniture conditions, gathering objective input and creating a new experience and fresh environment for your customers, all in a budget-friendly way.
- How to assemble your “tool kit” and evaluate your existing library building on a budget (especially if you are landlocked and don’t have room to build an addition)
- How to gather staff and community input objectively and how to translate that input into prioritized facility improvements that have the most impact
- How to reconfigure existing library spaces and furniture and create a welcoming and comfortable environment for learning, entertainment and social gathering
- How to evaluate your furniture for replacement or retrofitting/updating
All webinars are archived and will be available to watch a couple of days after the original air date.
