Tech Therapy: The Library Building

Scott Carlson and Warren Arbogast discuss the future of library buildings on the latest
edition of Tech Therapy.
The Athenaeum, the new library at Goucher College that will feature not only books but treadmills, is the initial focus of the discussion. Libraries are increasingly all things to all people, and planning needs to reflect on that. “As you are planning library spaces, you need to find ways to bring nuance and agility into the conversation about what the library will become,” Scott says. “You need to stay away from saying the library will be all one thing or the other, or we’re going all electronic or going all paper, or whatever.”
