Hi all--

We have purchased land and are going to build a new facility--dependent on
a successful bond vote, of course.  Anticipated cost  ($12.5M) is
established and square footage (35,000 sf and a basement!!) as well.   Our
building committee is in place, discussing space needs, where program space
should be located, etc.  I know that every library system works
differently, but I'd like to talk to a couple of librarians to get a feel
for what the building committee's authority and charge are, how board and
community members fit into the process, and when the committee's job is

The books I'm reading just aren't helping with these questions.  I'd love
to set  up some time to talk to people who have completed a major building
project or who are in the middle of one.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
