?Wishing you could build a new library? Frantically looking for more space?...This work may be the ticket to help you think through your dreams ...Planning is a worthy resource intended to help the reader think. ...Like talking to a trusted colleague with whom you don't always agree, Planning has a solid, almost grounding, feel to it. ...At the very least, it will help allay that chaotic, deer-in-the-headlights feeling for people new to library design, building, and renovation.?-Booklist/Professional Reading
