The Library of Brookline’s new website uses community events and a sleek design to place itself at the forefront of cutting edge library websites.
“I’m thrilled that we selected Stirling Technologies as our web development partner. The Library’s new site has exceeded my expectations, and the project was delivered on time and on budget. We worked together nimbly and swiftly and had fun in the process. Most importantly, users have responded overwhelmingly positively to the new site, so our key goal has been achieved.” –Hank Sway, IT Director
The Library of Brookline, based in Brookline Massachusetts, is a tech forward, community focused library. Over its 148 years, the Brookline Public Library has encouraged, molded, inspired, and nurtured many important icons of local, regional, and national culture. These people have not only played a role in the community, but have also contributed to our nation’s history. Developing a brand new website for Brookline has been both a pleasure, and an honor.
Event management took the main stage in the new design, making it easier than ever before to find, plan and attend events. Events are managed by a custom WordPress plugin built by and only available through Stirling Technologies.
Searching through a website isn’t always easy, especially when multiple databases are available. Even with Google’s help, the search-ability of a website relies heavily upon its back end. To combat these challenges, the developers at Stirling Technologies created a WordPress plugin to easily search the library website and library catalog.
In addition to powerful search options, traditional navigation is critical to any website. Using mega-menus, users can quickly and easily access any section of the website.
