With the hustle and bustle of libraries as community hubs, how can staff possibly create a safer space while also opening the doors to everyone? Is it possible to improve safety while still making your library welcoming and functional? In a word, "yes!"
By taking several key steps, your library can remain a welcoming, fun place for patrons of all ages, while keeping their safety a top priority. In this session, we'll feature procedures and building modifications – both simple and complex – that staff can begin implementing right away to make their buildings safer.
From budget-friendly fixes that anyone can tackle to more advanced upgrades such as access controls, cameras and realignment of service points, the range possible modifications include something for every kind of library and skill level. Real-world examples from a nationally recognized expert library architect, library safety staff, and library directors across multiple districts will be shared, including lessons learned and approaches to overcome difficult safety challenges.
