With the growth of mobile information, how do libraries remain relevant and relational? Students use library spaces to meet a variety of learning, creation, and recreation needs. The challenge for librarians is to convert dated buildings originally designed for collection storage into flexible learning spaces. Follow us as we recount our ongoing transformation from a 1960s edifice into a 21st century learning retreat, and in doing so spark planning and revitalization efforts in your library.
