“Change is inevitable. Maintaining relevance is a matter of choice”
If library staff fail to drive informed change, ill-informed changes may be imposed on them! As such, it is critical to develop a future plan – a vision of how the space, technology and collection will evolve in order to obtain the support necessary to meet current and emerging needs.
“It’s near impossible for libraries to generate adequate financial support if they don’t have a vision to sell”
While it is easy to generate a long list of what we would like, it probably will not come to fruition unless we develop a strategically planned and budgeted vision. This must include technology, seating, marketing & promotion, signage and critically, innovative visual merchandising must replace the culture of housing the physical collection.
VISION 2020, Kevin Hennah’s fourth library-specific workshop is designed to help library staff develop plans to achieve this goal – spaces that are vibrant, agile and relevant to their customer base.
Showcasing realistically achievable innovation and challenging traditional ideas, VISION 2020 will fuse highly practical advice with hundreds of photographs of Kevin’s recent international projects in both public libraries and education. Be inspired by ideas on:
– Maintaining a relevant print offering
– Genre-based layout initiatives that are proven to significantly increase usage stats
– Integration of technology
– Contemporary seating solutions and learning spaces in libraries
– Creating future-focused educational libraries that have a viable point of difference (where applicable)
– Innovation in library-specific signage
– Contemporary, library-specific promotional strategies
Gather your team or invite neighbouring libraries to share the cost of this dynamic workshop that includes hundreds of inspirational photographic images Kevin Hennah has taken at libraries across Europe, The USA, The UAE, Asia and Australia.
