Libraries are using existing spaces within facilities for multiple program types, and are challenged to re-imagine how spaces are repurposed for changing demands. This session will discuss how to design for flexible space use problems, and review key considerations in a successful multipurpose or repurposed space for both quiet and collaboration, such as acoustics and lighting. The program will include examples and new ideas on shared and repurposed space design and furniture solutions.
