Rethink & Re-envision: Dramatic Redesigns of Existing Spaces

September 19, 2012

In this Demco-sponsored webcast, Kimberly Bolan Cullin, Principal Consultant from Kimberly Bolan & Associates joins Demco’s Director of Library Markets, Janet Nelson to discuss how librarians can work within their existing building to create the library of tomorrow.

Today’s successful libraries are the hub of the community. In a common space they bring together users, materials, technology, collaboration and meeting areas, and offer quiet as well as social spaces. This program is geared to forward-thinking librarians who wish to create thriving 21st century libraries without building new. Participants will hear first-hand experiences that include alternatives for addressing library trends and challenges when revamping and redesigning existing spaces.

Learn how to:

  1. Manage the evolution of your library and think about libraries in new ways
  2. Use learnings from other libraries when undertaking your facilities project
  3. Find ways to show your customers the possibilities
  4. Integrate upcoming and future trends into your library spaces and programs
