Most of us have heard the expression “Change is inevitable, progress is optional”. Ron Gillies, Head Librarian at the Lloydminster Public Library, needed a progressive solution for his problem. The library was no longer just a collection of books and a place to study; it had become a community learning centre for multicultural connections, collaboration, digital enlightenment, creation, imagination and discovery. A place for exchanging ideas and information, not just finding them. To embrace all these aspirations, he needed more space – but on a very tight budget expansion was not an option.
