Planning for a building project? 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. The event will be held at the Bozeman Public Library in Bozeman, Montana on May 6, 2016 with a half-day tour of local libraries the afternoon of May 5. Registration is free and open only to librarians and their city planners.
Registrants are invited to submit real-life design challenges. 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.
