For library buildings, how can staff possibly create a safe space while simultaneously 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 a few key steps, your library can remain a welcoming, fun place for patrons of all ages while keeping their safety a top priority.
Bond Architects has provided design services to nearly 50 libraries, including many upgrades to safety and security such as access controls, realignment of stacks, reorientation of service desks and much more.
We are currently conducting ongoing research to provide additional avenues for improved safety and security in libraries. Each library is unique, and we would love to meet with you to build a custom plan for improvements at your branch.
