A library website template that lets your patrons find what they want.
Free code for you to download and implement!
Whether your patrons are 8 years old or 85 years old, viewing the website on a phone, tablet, or a PC, One-Pager offers one consistent, usable interface for giving them library information they need.
Yes, purposefully so. Many library websites are filled with information that users don’t care about, largely because library website development is stuck in a rut. It is focused on solving problems in one way: the additive way.
Smaller sites are easier to maintain and allow patrons to find what they want faster. You might think that there is a lot of essential content on your library’s website. A proper One-Pager implementation process will expose the parts that are extraneous and make maintaining and using your website easier.
While we value two-way communication with patrons, we value usable library websites more. Patrons are better served by being able to easily find what they want than by being able to leave a comment. The two aren’t mutually exclusive, however, and One-Pager is a solid foundation from which to grow.
We are happy to develop One-Pager as a Drupal or WordPress theme specifically tailored to your library’s needs so your patrons can comment as much as they would like.
No. A good website doesn’t arrive swaddled in blankets, delivered by a stork. Effectively using One-Pager will require user research, content strategy, writing skills and good design intuition.
