Design Institute | Austin, TX

Join us in Texas for a day-long seminar
and start planning the library of the future today.


 

Hosted by Library Journal in partnership with Austin Public Library--at its award-winning new Central Library -- this installment of our library building and design event will bring you the latest trends in library design. Dig deep with architects, librarians, and vendors to explore building/renovating/ retrofitting spaces both large and small that will redefine the relationship with your users and engage your community.

Whether you're in the dreaming and planning stages or further along the design road,
you'll find ideas, information, and inspiration, no matter your budget!
