Berkeley Public Library is committed to developing collections, resources, and services that meet the cultural, informational, recreational, and educational needs of Berkeley's diverse, multi-cultural community.  Our website ( is one of the most important ways we have to communicate with our users. Berkeley Public Library is soliciting proposals from qualified firms or individuals for Website Redesign and Web Content Management System (CMS) Implementation for the library’s website. The selected firm will develop a user friendly website which can deliver a large volume of frequently changing content to our key audiences. The library will maintain ultimate editorial control of content and will be responsible for publishing new information on the website. The Request for Proposal (Specification No. 13-10694) and details on how to submit a proposal can be found at: Proposals must be received no later than 2:00 P.M., on Tuesday, October 9, 2012.  All responses must be in a sealed envelope and have “Library Website Redesign and Content Management System Implementation” and “Specification No. 13-10694” clearly marked on the outer most mailing envelope. We are excited to be launching a process that will result in a new website design to better serve the community and showcase our services and resources. We look forward to launching the new state-of-the-art website in 2013.
