How do you set about planning and designing a library for children or teenagers? How should it be different from a library intended for adults, and how can you get the right kind of help from designers and architects? Get the 'inside story' from an experienced library design consultant on creating those special spaces in your library that promote and encourage children's and young adults' curiosity, learning, and reading - and support their lifelong love of books and information. Nolan Lushington covers the complete planning process from concept to 'grand opening', guiding you through the technical aspects of design and construction and the finer points of lighting, acoustics, furnishings, equipment, multimedia areas, youth areas, and much more. Key topics of this title include: improving service by design; innovative children's library models; planning a new children's library; assessing physical needs; design considerations; organizing the children's area; entrances, displays, graphics and lighting; age-related design; designing programme, activity and staff areas; furnishings and equipment; and, quick fixes and common mistakes. The helpful appendices offer case studies and lists of suppliers, architects and further information. Whether you're a children's or youth librarian, library director, school facilities planner - or indeed an architect or designer - you'll discover valuable, practical tips and insights to help you create that inviting environment called the library.
