Libraries and Library District Web Design

Times have changed for the American library. More people are now going online to find what they once used to look for among their community’s bookshelves. Many are even reading books and articles right from their home computers, tablets and other smart devices. But that doesn’t render libraries obscure. To the contrary, by adapting with Internet branding and technology, libraries can remain a rich and reliable community resource that informs and educates an even greater audience.

Library Websites

All around the country, libraries are continuing to serve as important places for research, study, and community organization. However, a lot of the great work that they do goes unnoticed because they may not have the right kind of web presence.

To make sure that yours stands out, and that students and community members know why they should stop by, here are four things that have to be found on your library website:

#1: Basic Library Information

In some communities, there are at least a few different libraries around. Make sure it's easy to tell which one your website is for. Or, if your website is for several different libraries, include links to the various branches from your home page. You might also want to say something about the size of the library.

#2: Maps, Directions, and Hours

Residents and visitors can't enjoy your library if they can't find it. Including maps, driving directions, and hours is important, especially since many website visitors will be viewing your pages from smart phones while making their way to your library or branch.

#3: Upcoming Events

Most libraries have lots of special educational events. Make sure they are promoted via an online schedule that's kept up-to-date. You might even want to start an email list, so community members can be reminded about upcoming events, displays, and speakers.

#4: Online Exhibits

Many libraries are increasing community interest (not to mention attracting donations) by hosting online exhibits. These can be unique photos and stories, or items from existing collections, either within your library or a nearby museum.

There is an art and science to building a great library website. To see how we can help, call Weblinx at 630-551-0334 x1 today.
