Abstract:

Ambience and environment matter, particularly if you have competition. If you are competing for customers with the bookstore down the street that serves up lattes and comfy chairs, then you know that the look and feel of your library can make a difference when it comes to bringing people of all ages into the library. Focusing on functionality (for staff) and appeal (for customers), this illustrated how-to guide offers a comprehensive plan for designing new or renovated spaces. From furniture to lighting and signage to acoustics, this readable, beautifully illustrated book shows you how to plan.
