COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT STRATEGIES
Since 1972, Aaron Cohen Associates LTD, Library Consultant, has drawn on our wealth of library space planning and programming experiences to assist in the application of library systems and service upgrades. Libraries around the world request our community engagement sessions to explore the development of new buildings, renovations, and additions. We provide consensus building workshops, including the development of new libraries, operations, collections, and storage systems. Our experience is broad, with projects ranging in size from small public libraries to large academic libraries.
Library programming enables libraries and businesses to develop a list of space requirements. It can also be used to define the digital library services and operations requirements; strategic services that will increase support for your users behavior. Branding spaces and services can be achieved through library programming. The work resides in simple spreadsheets, supported by our library consulting methodology for modern library operations and architecture.
