Design Institute | Colorado Springs, CO

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


Hosted by Library Journal in partnership with Pikes Peak Library District—home of the innovative Library 21c—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.
