Annual Institute on the Library As Place 2017

Annual Institute on the Library As Place 2017
The purpose of the Annual Institute on the Library as Place is to provide a learning opportunity for the library, municipal, design, and architect sectors to learn more about physical space (e.g., characteristics of great future-oriented spaces; advocacy for the library as physical space; effective collaboration with communities, architects, project managers, municipal officials, and builders) and to become equipped to plan and respond quickly to capitalize on opportunities for development and redevelopment for all types of libraries. Participants are from the public, school, special and academic library sectors, in addition to municipal decision makers, architects and designers.

Theme: The Mindful Library in the 21st Century

Libraries flourish when they reflect the communities served and the multiple perspectives of their constituencies. Successful library places and spaces are designed to foster resiliency, inclusivity, accessibility, sustainability, flexibility and to anticipate future needs in creative, inspiring ways.
