I have to admit: I am in library love with Aaron Schmidt and Amanada Etches, aka INFLUX. They always do beautiful things to make libraries a better place for the community and that warms my heart.
So naturally when they announced PREFAB: THE LIBRARY WEBSITE SERVICE this week I was over the moon. What is it?

Stop the madness
Libraries across the country are all working – with limited resources and skills – to solve the same, basic library website design problems. It makes no sense! So we did the design work and created a template that’s appropriate for many different libraries.
Justin here again: this is awesome. It cuts out all the little things you shouldn’t be worrying about anyway and lets you focus on giving your community the INFORMATION THEY NEED.
