As a library Director or Board member, do you know when or how to plan a remodel or addition, or when to just start over with a new library building? Do you need to make better use of the space inside your library? If you are not sure where to start in answering these questions join us at Rolling Prairie Library System, Wednesday, September 15th for "Buildings and Birthdays with Fred Schlipf.

Dr. Schlipf, Instructor of the Library Buildings course at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and former Director of the Urbana Free Library, has been a building consultant for over 30 years. Fred will describe the library planning, design and construction process, including information on evaluating existing buildings, planning new space, hiring and working with consultants and architects, and maintaining services during construction.

After the formal presentation, there will be time for a limited number of 30-minute, one-on-one sessions with individual libraries, so sign up before they are gone! Contact Angela,, for an appointment.

We will have cake and coffee to celebrate Fred's birthday."
