Review:

"Any librarian considering a major renovation or an entirely new library will find this moderately priced tool well worth getting and worn out from use when the work is done." ..".will go a long way toward eliminating those regrets often encountered after the construction crews have departed. Make sure your architect has a copy also...Recommended." "Anyone contemplating redesigning or building a library would be foolish not to take advantage of the assistance this book provides at such a reasonable cost." "A must-have resource for library planners, librarians, architects, and all members of the design team, the work should help everyone involved to evaluate the current space, analyse each design element as it relates to space and function in the library, make decisions ranging from shelving finishes to technology equipment, and satisfy the requirements of the disabled." "When Judy Blume says 'Bravo!' to an author in a book's foreword, librarians should take notice. And this very useful book certainly deserves the accolades that Blume gives."
