Thanks @Carrie!
Sara Ryan
01:04:15
Curious if you might speak specifically about considerations with teens & furniture, knowing that teens often like to cluster close together and use furniture in non-standard/unexpected ways.
Carrie Banks
01:05:27
Hi tables/chairs can be difficult for people with mobility issues like seniors
Michelle Hamrick
01:05:46
High tables are difficult for some people. Will you address ADA accommodations and also age related challenges?
Sara Ryan
01:05:55
+1 Carrie & Michelle
Kelly Wilson
01:06:13
I really wish airports had more spacing between seats.
Barb Bergman
01:06:38
Yes, that is so accurate about airport seating.
Jane Mertens
01:06:57
I think the accessibility comment is part of the reason why you can't have just one type of seating. You need spaces for each type of person.
Carrie Banks
01:07:57
@jane Yep!
David Norris
01:08:12
Is there a gender conditioning component to some of these space considerations, e.g., men preferring more space in their environments?
Susan Middleton
01:08:17
is there an handout/resource guide?
Stephen Abram
01:08:18
High tables / laptop bars are often preferred by teens and younger adults. So they need to be chosen for the audience. Another seniors issue is to include wheels on chairs in some areas for ease of flex but no wheels on areas preferred by seniors who lean on the chair to sit and potentially have it roll away. Easily lockable wheels (by foot) are good.
Millie Gonzalez
01:08:59
What about spaces that are conducive for naps?
Kelly Wilson
01:09:21
+1 to Millie's question
David Norris
01:09:33
+1 to Millie's question - especially in academic spaces
Jane Mertens
01:09:54
@Stephen yes, exactly. @Millie my school had furniture that was designed for napping. It was more cavelike so you get that security zone.
Carrie Banks
01:11:37
Study carols are also good to minimizing distractions.
Stephen Abram
01:12:16
If you remember being a male teen you know you never sat in a chair properly - just languished and slouched. Beanbag chairs as a option can be tested cheaply and work for teens and tweens to get more boys in the library and comfortable.
Millie Gonzalez
01:12:26
How do you consider various people sizes in your furniture in these egg shape carols?
Kim Auger
01:13:40
Was that over 39” or over 49” for diminished returns
Margaret Ellingson
01:14:07
Rounded shapes literally are more natural, even womblike.
Kim Auger
01:15:06
Yet our students will drag the lounge wider soft furniture up to our tables.
Kelly Wilson
01:16:45
Agreed, Kim
Kelly Wilson
01:16:57
Students LOVE to redecorate
David Norris
01:17:07
@Stephen "Not sitting in chairs properly" is also a characteristic of neurodivergent individuals. A variety of seating options might help them feel more comfortable and welcome.
Denise Smith
01:17:59
All of our furniture upstairs in the commons is easily moved - we encourage students to "make the space fit their needs."
Jane Mertens
01:19:20
Its also fairly typically for people who are either shorter or taller than average to sit in furniture differently. I know I almost always sit with my feet up in the chair in some way because my feet never reach the ground. Taller people sometimes have difficulty fitting into spaces as well. Its important to have a variety because of this.
Margaret Ellingson
01:20:02
Yes, variety is essential.
Stephen Abram
01:20:02
@David for sure but sometimes I think all teens and tweens and temporarily neurodivergent at that stage.
Denise Smith
01:20:54
I would love to have access to the powerpoint after the presentation to help me remember and illustrate important points.
Kate Herzog
01:20:57
??What about adjustable seat heights?? As a 'short person', I often need to raise my seat to have the work surface at a comfortable level.
Michelle Hamrick
01:20:59
I'm appreciating this presentation-- lots to think about. This will be helpful to guide our decisions
Ammi Bui
01:22:01
most libraries have an area that looks like that first photo 🤣
Webinar Support
01:22:03
@Denise--a link to the slides and recording will be sent out via email by the end of tomorrow!
Sara Ryan
01:22:24
will the chat transcript be included as well?
Webinar Support
01:22:35
The Zoom recording will include a playback of the chat, yes.
Kim Auger
01:22:49
We have some of that furniture on the right
Sara Ryan
01:22:49
👍🏻
Denise Smith
01:22:59
Yeah! Thank you so much!
Margaret Ellingson
01:23:02
The fireplace photo looks like my local public library. It’s a very popular spot.
Stephen Abram
01:23:50
Cheap fixes can include those step stools being available for short-legged people. They often stack for storage and help with kids too.
Joel Jones
01:23:57
Thank you JOe for your expertise. I appreciate it
Penny Hayes
01:24:01

Thoughts on children's library rooms? How might space, haven, comfort shift?
Margaret Ellingson
01:27:10
Wonderful, informative presentation. Thanks!
Julia Cuddahy
01:27:58
Can you talk about how some of these design principles might relate to displays? (i.e. book displays)
Dona Rintelman
01:27:59
Even your presentation took space, haven, comfort and aesthetics into consideration, Joe! Time well spent with worthwhile information.
Michelle Hamrick
01:28:47
I'd appreciate more of these presentations about space planning. This is very helpful
Adam Testerman
01:29:50
Any suggestions for how we might think about these awesome physical space considerations in digital spaces?
