The Library Journal Design Institute – a one-day, hands-on, small group event on library design – is being held on September 21 at Minneapolis Central Library. The event will be hosted by “Library Journal” and Hennepin County Library Director Lois Langer Thompson.

Those who register before August 10, 2018 will have the opportunity for their library’s design challenges — whether it is a one-room fix or a building-wide renovation — to be workshopped by participating architects, who’ll share their expertise in small breakout sessions.

“Library Journal” is offering Idaho library staff a special registration rate of $114. (The full rate is $163). To receive the discounted rate, use the promotion code MN30 when registering.

All participants will be able to sign up for breakout sessions that spur their imagination and get their creative juices flowing. In addition, the event will include a mix of panels on “designing for changing collections,” “staff roles,” and “new services.” Also, participants will have the opportunity to have their own questions answered by architects and vendors. Plus, there will be time to network with colleagues.

On September 20, there will be a half-day tour of surrounding libraries and a reception hosted by MSR Design.

To register, visit…before August 10 to get the discounted rate!
