Introducing Prefab: the Library Website Service

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?

How it works

Sign up, fill in your content, launch. All in the same day, if you’re motivated!

Prefab is designed for libraries:

  • Easy catalog search integration
  • Simple item promotion
  • Events advertising space
  • Responsive design – looks great on all devices
  • Powered by WordPress
  • Easy links to social media profiles

What you get with Prefab:

  • Hosting
  • A back end training session
  • Email and phone support
  • Information Architecture and navigation suggestions
  • Help arranging your domain

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.
