Key Takeaways

  • Designing and operating a library is a collaborative effort. The range of conference attendees—from book sellers, furniture vendors, architects, and of course librarians—shows how many people play a role in creating the public libraries we all enjoy. 
  • Flexible, multipurpose rooms are critical to providing unique events for a community. An open space with moveable furnishings can accommodate a variety of events—such as two-person Shakespeare plays, Mother Goose Story Hour, and Dungeons and Dragons—on the same day!
