Overview

A library building project leaves a legacy for decades, so it's important to get it right. Those with access to a trustworthy expert who can explain the process in step-by-step terms will have the best chance of making their projects succeed. McCarthy is an architect with in-depth expertise building libraries as well as an eighteen-year veteran library trustee. He communicates the challenges and opportunities from both sides of the table. This authoritative overview is filled with practical advice for understanding key relationships and managing a complex process. Library directors, professionals, administrators, and trustees will learn what the responsibilities are on both sides.

Checklists and sample construction documents provide hands-on insights into the best practices in library construction. McCarthy explains the entire process, from deciding on new construction and analyzing the site to working with architects to evaluating the process and assessing the building's effectiveness. Managing Your Library Construction Project is an inspirational and comprehensive must-have reference.
