Description

This half-day workshop will address the changes that must take place so that the library building can provide dynamic learning spaces. The workshop will run from 9:00am to 1pm. During the morning session, emphasis will be placed on recycling existing facilities and developing new services. We will share methods to evaluate learning environments that patrons will want to visit and use. We share case studies of library building and planning, detailing measurements that make up a library/learning space. The Library Visual Scan© is an evidence-based space assessment. It uses performance criteria and measurements to evaluate space needs as they relate to services, operations and the potential for change. It is an aid to strategic thinking and planning.
