According to the American Library Association (ALA), libraries are perpetually challenged to mold and fit in today’s digital world, requiring constant space modifications and upgrades to meet the needs of its increasingly busy and savvy patrons. As a result, it is necessary for libraries to continually renovate, re-purpose space, and send materials to off-site storage to better serve its users.
At ALA annual conference being held June 21-26 in Anaheim, William B. Meyer, Inc. will be presenting a round table session to help educate library leaders from across the United States about the creative uses of technology to ease the library transition process.
Ted Kennedy, Vice President of Sales at William B. Meyer, Inc, is the moderator who will be leading the Exhibitor Round Table (ERT) “LIBRARIES IN TRANSITION: USING TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR BEST ADVANTAGE” that will be held Sunday, June 24, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Hilton Anaheim in room Pacific B.
“With new trends in library layout, storage, and digital options we want to educate people on the technology that is available to help with new aspects of library relocation,” said Kennedy. “We are encouraging people with these challenges to attend so we can help ease the stress of the relocation project and educate them on the technology that is available.”
