The planning of Fresnes public library : trying to rationalize

The projected construction of a new building for the Fresnes municipal library provided the opportunity to develop a plan which would involve the practical application of a " public management " library. The process of defining objectives (mission statement, policy statement, collections development) and methods (analysis, planning, organization, evaluation) is the time of an experiment which is being carried out with the cooperation of Enssib. The building was conceived in a way it reflects and embodies the main directions of this approach as well as its impact on the work of the librarian in a medium-sized town.
