Join us in Bozeman, MT for a day-long seminar and start planning the library of the future today.

Hosted by Library Journal in partnership with Bozeman Public Library, this newest installment of our library building and design event will bring you the latest thinking in library design. Come together with librarians, architects, and vendors to explore building/renovating for evolving user expectations and community engagement and hear about recently constructed or renovated libraries that will spur your own solutions.

Whether you’re renovating, retrofitting, or building  anew, you’ll find ideas, information, and inspiration no matter your budget!

This full-day event 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. There will also be plenty of face time and networking opportunities with architects, furniture and equipment vendors, and colleagues.

Admission is free but space is limited, so sign up today! Registration is open only to librarians,
their city planners, and library board or foundation members. If you are an architect and would like to sponsor, please contact Advertising Director Roy Futterman: Rfutterman@mediasourceinc.com.

“What a gift to have an all day, no cost session on library design. Outstanding venue, array of presentations and overall experience. Everyone involved in any aspect of library design should take advantage of the next opportunity.”-Cindy Cleary, Glendale Library,
Glendale, CA
