Design Institute Missoula

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!


Library Journal and School Library Journal are thrilled to once again be hosting our long-running library building and design event in person! And we’re especially excited to be hosting it in partnership with Missoula Public Library.  This full-day think tank provides expert panel discussions with architects and librarians, as well as hands-on, architect-led breakout sessions tackling real-life design challenges submitted in advance by attendees. 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. There will be plenty of facetime and networking opportunities throughout the day with colleagues.

Join us and get ideas, information, and inspiration for any design challenges your library might be facing!
