Event description

Description

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

Hosted by Library Journal in partnership with Hennepin County Library at the Minneapolis Central Library, the newest installment of our library building and design event will bring you the latest trends in library design. Dig deep with architects, librarians, and vendors to explore building anew and renovating/retrofitting spaces both large and small that will engage your community.

Whether you’re in the dreaming and planning stages or further along the design road, you’ll find ideas, information, and inspiration, no matter your budget!

This full-day think tank provides expert panel discussions with architects and librarians, as well as hands-on, architect-led breakout sessions dealing with real-life design challenges submitted in advance by you and your fellow attendees. “Speed-sessions” with individual architects will help you address your own library-specific questions (be sure to bring photos, illustrations, floor plans, or plat maps—whatever you think will enhance the discussion). There will be plenty of face time and networking opportunities throughout the day with colleagues, too.

Arrive early for an optional afternoon tour of new libraries on Thursday, September 20, followed by a NEXTDesign Forum/Reception at Open Book, hosted by MSR, on The Role of Public Buildings and Sites in Creating Equitable Cities.
