Rob and I will be conducting a webinar titled Transforming Library Space: Rethinking how library spaces can be configured to enhance and expand community engagement on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm ET. Anyone can register. If you can't attend on the date, you still get the audio recording and handouts so you can share with a greater audience at your convenience. We hope you'll participate. South Central Regional Library Council has put a lot of effort into coordinating this.
Here's the description:
While future-facing libraries are pushing boundaries, the public still
perceives libraries as being primarily about books. As libraries of all types
expand their focus, physical spaces are being transformed in ways we couldn’t
have imagined even 10 years ago. Rethink how your library’s space might be
configured to better engage your existing users as well as draw in new users. Learn
how some key budget-friendly alterations to existing library space can refresh users’
perceptions and keep them coming back.
