Join Library Journal for Library Design Online, a reimagining of our long-running, in-person Design Institute program. Whether you're looking to revamp your space as we continue to deal with COVID-19, or plan for future building/design projects, you'll find ideas, information, and inspiration—no matter your budget!
This new and comprehensive online virtual event will feature noted architects and vendors in library design who’ll address design trends, spotlight case studies, and answer pressing questions from the field. Topics will include retooling physical space for staff and patron safety, innovating to address social and racial equity and inclusion, funding new and renovated buildings in a down economy, and more. Attendance is free to librarians, their board members/trustees, and local officials.
Throughout the day, you will engage with presenters in live and pre-recorded webcast sessions. You’ll attend architect-led breakouts featuring design challenges submitted by your counterparts, and you’ll visit the Virtual Exhibit Hall where you can sign up for one-on-one chats with sponsors in their booths and learn more about service and product offerings. A comprehensive selection of sponsors’ resources will be available to attendees to ‘take home,’ and the event will be available for on-demand viewing for three months following its live broadcast.
