Planning Your Library: Post COVID (Waterloo Center for the Arts | Petersen Town Hall Rm))

Nov 4, 2022, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Join NYU professor David Vinjamuri, author “Library Space Planning: A PLA Guide” (ALA, 2019) and architect Joe Huberty to learn how to build or renovate a library that meets your community’s needs.

The workshop has four essential parts:

1.) Understanding Community Needs – getting past community input sessions and focus groups to uncover community needs.
2.) Analyzing Space Performance – looking at zone use, circulation data, pathways and usage to optimize space use.
3.) Planning Zones – creating an effective interior space plan.
4.) Hiring the Design Team and Managing Construction – How to build the right team and safeguard the integrity of your design through construction.

This will be a hands-on workshop: please bring a floorplan of your space to use during exercises.
