So, You’d Like a New Library?


Learn the full process that the Tiverton (RI) Library Staff, Board of Directors, and Architect used to build a new 24,000 sf public library, from concept to completion. Presenters will discuss the challenges of a capital campaign and winning a controversial bond referendum; how they involved the library staff in the design process; effective tools for engaging the public to solicit their *real* desires and concerns; and how the opening of the new facility has changed operations for the library staff. This “soup-to-nuts” session will outline the steps needed to realize a new facility, from the initial need realization to the grand opening and beyond.
