Design Institute Invites Wyoming Libraries



The next Library Journal Design Institute will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 27, and Wyoming librarians, library board or foundation members, and city or county planners and officials can take advantage of a special rate.

Library Journal is extending their early bird rate of $140 per person to Wyoming libraries for the duration of the registration period. The full rate is $175 per person. Please use promo code “UT20” to unlock the association ticket when registering.

Library Journal’s Design Institute is a one-day think tank that brings librarians together with leading architects, designers, and product vendors for a day of presentations, interactive discussions, and innovative problem-solving on library space, design, and construction. Design Institute draws between 80-100 attendees with the majority being library directors, city librarians, as well as city and facility planners.

John Chrastka

John Chrastka, Founder and Executive Director of EveryLibrary, the first nationwide Political Action Committee for libraries, is the keynote speaker. Chrastka will discuss what you need to do to win at the ballot box and get your project funded. Since 2012, EveryLibrary has provided pro-bono support to 75 library communities with ballot measures and tax referenda.

Sign up before March 16 to submit real-life design challenges with your registration. Each submission is vetted and reviewed by Library Journal, and then each sponsoring architect selects their top choice of design challenge to take on. The architect and library then work together to create a breakout session to be held onsite at the event. Even if a library’s submission is not selected, Design Institute affords every attendee the opportunity to have face-to-face time with the architects and product vendors to discuss their challenge needs. Whether you’re renovating, retrofitting, or building anew, you’ll find ideas, information, and inspiration no matter your budget.
