Libraries

This group is for libraries - public, academic, school, law, what-have-you. It is not about code libraries.
Ask questions and/or tell us what your library or organization is up to.

Please add your library to our Drupal libraries roster

Request/Reserve a Room -- is anyone using Drupal to manage this function?

Our library is looking for a way for customers to request a room or equipment reservation from our Drupal site. We would like our staff to be able to select a room for library-sponsored events and programs as well while they are entering the details about the upcoming program.

If possible, we would like to incorporate a financial piece for accepting deposits.

Template Design

Does anyone have resources (like step-by-step tutorials) for building templates in Drupal? As part of my library job, I'm being pushed into designing templates which will need stuff like image resizing capabilities, uploading stuff, etc. I know very little PHP. The regular Drupal forums haven't been very fruitful so I decided to try out the libraries + Drupal community on here for pointers!

Thanks.
