Lambeth Council decided to commission an online tool that would be fun and easy for all ages to use. The tool needed to enable residents to decide how much to spend on things like staff, books, electronic materials and even cleaning services, with funds that matched a real local library budget. It also needed to work on all desktops and mobile devices.
White October came up with Lambeth Library Challenge, an interactive, online tool. The user is given a budget to work with, and then decides how to spend the money. The user builds the library by moving through pages that are richly illustrated in a fun, pop-up book style, moving resources around while watching how their various buying decisions affect the budget.
Quite simply the tool has changed and improved the way we work with our library users.
