While many of us consider "the library" to be the collection of books and media, it is important to manage the building itself. Space management affects everything from ADA compliance to noise levels to how comfortable your community feels when using your meeting spaces. New construction and renovation opportunities are great times to explore the green-ness of your facility; many new public libraries have become leading examples of LEED certification and sustainable architecture. The security of your facility and grounds is also highly important as you provide a safe and welcoming destination in your community.
