Library Journal, in partnership with the Salt Lake City Public Library and Salt Lake County Library, is hosting Design Institute: The New Face of the Library. The event is in Salt Lake City on Friday, May 16th, and admission/registration is free. Here is the schedule: http://lj.libraryjournal.com/designinstitute/schedule/.

From http://lj.libraryjournal.com/designinstitute/:
[The] event will bring you the latest design thinking to insure that your libraries remain vital community learning and gathering spaces.
Come together with librarians, architects, and vendors to explore topics such as sustainable operations and building, flexible space and maker spaces, co-location and urban renewal, and much more. Whether you’re renovating, retrofitting, or building anew, whatever your budget, you’ll find ideas, information, and inspiration.
This full-day event provides expert panel discussions with librarians and architects on pressing topics and trends in library space and design as well as a special panel focusing on the latest product offerings. Attendees have hands on time in a small group architect-led breakout session dealing with real-life design challenges submitted in advance by fellow attendees. There will also be plenty of face time and networking opportunities with architects, furniture and equipment vendors, and colleagues.
And you’ll have the opportunity to take an optional tour of area libraries hosted by Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County libraries on May 15 from 12:00-5:00 pm preceding the May 16 seminar (details to come/registrants will be alerted by email).
Admission is free but space is limited, so sign up today<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/designinstitute/register/>! Registration is open only to librarians and their city planners.
