Flexible Spaces – Flexible Futures
A webinar focused on library space planning and on how changing patron needs are leading to changed library spaces.
This event has passed.
As libraries continue to evolve as community spaces and information hubs, there is an opportunity to explore how patrons use library space and to create spaces that are flexible and adaptable to changing needs. Presenter Dri Ralph has helped lead the King County Library System (WA) through an extensive bond project which has included the renovation and/or building of 30 libraries. She will share highlights of their design choices, ideas for flexible use of space, and tips for engaging the community in the planning and design process.
The webinar will also explore options for libraries with limited budgets. You’ll learn about opportunities to help any library make innovative choices for engaging with patrons.
Presented by: Kendra Morgan, OCLC Senior Program Manager, and Dri Ralph, Facilities Design Coordinator, King County Library System
Start time: 2:00 Eastern / 11:00 Pacific
