Tell us a story about this website.
We've done a few things to get this little old library back into the town spotlight, the website is one of the big things. The library has been featured in several news stories and the site has received many visits, more than I expected. The people in town have been very supportive and seem excited about the changes.
Why did you use this Sandvox design?
I chose this design because it is simple and uncluttered. I looked at many library websites while working on this one, most have multiple columns filled with information. Walls of text in my mind. I believe when people visit the Berry Memorial Library site, the information that they are looking for is simple to find and not overwhelming. I feel that the books should be in the library, not on the site.
What techniques did you use to build this website?
I'm not a designer or coder, I'm more of a marketing guy. The stuff I did was pretty basic, I started with a template, added pages and pagelets, and a little bit of html for a Google map of the location.
