Library Buildings and Construction: Library Space Planning

Library Space Planning Guide, Worksheet, Bibliography

Using this Guide and its accompanying Worksheet, librarians and trustees can obtain a general estimate of their library's space needs, and help initiate a larger facilities planning process. The Advisory Council for Library Planning and Development revised the Guide in 2014. The State Library Board approved the revised version in May 2014. Minor updates were made in 2017. The bibliography is now available separately, and will be revised on a continuous basis.
