Library Requirements & Justifications for Planning Decisions
This website showcases, Designing a New Children's Space for the Fort St John Public Library, a project which looks at the broad concept of facilities planning in libraries and focuses on re-designing an exisiting space to better suit the needs of its user group. This paper deals specifically with the Fort St John Public Library and provides a new design for the children's area of the public library.
This project was written by Lesley Kok in November of 2007 for LIS 587: Facilities Planning for Libraries and Information Centres, at the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta.
This website has been created to fulfill the requirements of LIS 600, the Capping Exercise for the Master of Library and Information Studies program. The site also includes a reflective paper required for the completion of this exercise.

Some of this project was fictional due to the lack of information on actual size of the building and collection. However the demographics of the city are real.
