The current Covid-19 pandemic has changed how libraries function and serve their patrons. For many, an established service plan has had to be modified due to the necessity of social distancing and limitations on large gatherings. At a time like this, it may be appropriate to plan for what your library may look like in a post-covid world. This proactive approach to planning may involve one of the following:

  1. Facility Analysis

  2. Space Utilization Study

  3. Needs Assessment

  4. Master Facility/Site Planning

In the coming weeks, Merritt Cieslak Design will be providing an explanation of how these planning tools are used and their potential benefit.
