Building a library addition is all about the place. Once the cement has hardened and the paint is dry your attention shifts to use.

Funding for a library addition must be fully in place before construction begins.

Planning and building a digital library addition is all about use not place. There is no cement to harden nor paint to dry and funding must be secured while construction is underway and the construction never stops.

Building physical and digital library additions require different funding models.
