Queens Library Is Developing New Website

You might have heard, but in case you have not, Queens Library is developing a new website.

The web team behind the site asked me to forward the site to the readers of my blog so you can express how you feel about the new website, what you like /dislike and what you recommend we change in the new site.

You can see the site by logging into Queens Library's main page http://www.queenslibrary.org or by visiting the URL below.

I have also participated in the creation of the site and I am curious to see what you think. Please feel free to email me directly or comment on the bottom of this post and I will forward your comments to our web developers and librarians.

As you know I am a strong supporter of user driven libraries, where customers are active force behind the development of their community libraries.

No one better can define what libraries should do, how space should be designed or what libraries in the future should look like, than the library users themselves.

Optimize the server code as well so it runs very little queries and the design to not be as CPU intensive.
