Join us in St. Louis for a day-long seminar on reimagining library spaces in a digital world.
Hosted by Library Journal in partnership with St. Louis Public Library and St. Louis County Library, this latest installment of our highly acclaimed library building and design event will address the challenges libraries face in reconfiguring their spaces to accommodate changing user needs as ebooks and other digital resources expand and lifelong learning and literacy are ever more critical.
Come together with librarians, architects, and vendors to explore topics such as stacks vs. public space, flexibility vs. structured design, designing for different demographics, retrofitting or rebuilding older buildings, and much more.
DATE Friday, November 8, 2013 TIME 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM
“I was looking for creative, out of the box ideas – and I got it!” “Great session with many good ideas! Felt creative”
The Design Institute is a full day event that provides expert panel discussions with librarians and architects on pressing topics and trends in library space and design as well as a special panel focusing on the latest product offerings. Attendees have hands on time in a small group architect-led breakout session dealing with real-life design challenges submitted in advance by fellow attendees. Following the breakouts, participating architects will present “takeaways” from the design challenges. There will also be plenty of face time and networking opportunities with architects, furniture and equipment vendors, and colleagues.
Admission is limited to the first 100 registrants, so sign up today!
