With the wish to heighten their profile, modernize their environment and increase use, libraries in the UK have refurbished and, where necessary and possible, extended their existing buildings. Although much has been achieved in this regard across the UK, more continues and needs to be accomplished. The case-studies in this book provide librarians, architects and others with examples of what has been undertaken and highlight the policies, processes, design issues - and the problems that have been overcome - leading to successful library refurbishments. While the case studies are mainly drawn from the UK and cover a variety of library types, the book has wider international appeal and includes case studies drawn from Ireland, Sweden and the USA.

Review:

'Today's library users expect modern services, provided from well designed and welcoming spaces. This collection of well-chosen, detailed case studies shows librarians and architects how yesterday's buildings can be transformed into the libraries of the future.' Ian Snowley, British Library, UK '... this is a book that anyone setting out on a library refurbishment project should read.' The Irish Library, 2010 '...everyone involved with modernising and raising the profile of any library must read Renewing our Libraries - and this includes architects, financial consultants and facilities managers, as well as library professionals.' Australian Library Journal, November 2009 '... the author has produced timely and engaging work on renewing and modernising libraries of all types. He brings a wide knowledge and experience to the subject and writes lucidly and with commendable lack of jargon. The well chosen case studies of library buildings whilst mostly British, illuminate and expand one's professional knowledge of this area and should enhance most librarians' understanding and competence to deal with this growing sector of professional practice.' New Library World, 2011
