Regardless of the library you serve, there will be times when you need to address building-specific issues. In each situation, you must consider your facility's current and future usage, your facility's environmental impact, and available resources to maintain your building in a way that is both functional and appealing to patrons. It is best to consult with your library director when planning changes, because he or she knows the community and its usage best. Together, you can predict trends and work toward an ideal, community-centered future. When discussing renovations, remodeling or building, you should consider short- and long-term savings. Use a consultant when possible to help give you direction as you make these important decisions. All decisions should be made ethically and without conflict of interest.
