Shaker Library World Cafe

World Cafe Table Talks at Main Library

The library is wWorld Cafe 4orking with HBM Architects to study the feasibility of  renovation and/or new construction at both Main Library and Bertram Woods Branch.

On Saturday September 6, 2014 community members learned about Shaker Library’s Facilities Assessment and Feasibility Study and offered feedback on concepts for renovation and/or new construction at both Main Library and Bertram Woods Branch.

HBM presented information on trends in library design and services and asked participants to share their likes and dislikes for a variety of spaces throughout libraries. Couldn’t make it to the World Cafe? It’s not too late to share your thoughts on design trends.
