Annual Institute on the Library As Place 2018

Annual Institute on the Library As Place 2018
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: A Space For Everyone! Decolonizing Library Spaces in the Spirit of Reconciliation

The theme of the 2018 Institute is focused on decolonizing our spaces. What does it mean to decolonize library spaces and places? Join experts and colleagues to consider how we create, view and use library spaces, while making them more relevant and accessible for all. Learn more about culturally appropriate space planning and design strategies to create more responsive spaces.
