Can’t afford books for your new library? You could have budgeted for them during your planning!

The New Library Building is not a resource for which you plan your new library. The New Building  is the result of properly planning for your New Library.
Your library building houses Four Resources:
STAFF
COLLECTIONS
FACILITY
TECHNOLOGY

When you plan to account for these Resources, your New Library Building will be a success. If you don’t … you won’t be able to buy new books.
This visual accompanies an article from the BBC about the Birmingham Libraries not being able to afford to buy new books for their new library to save money.
 
Shortsighted and ill conceived, a ‘plan’ that’s not a plan can lead you to temporary or permanent disaster.
