St. Louis Saturday–Library Architecture April 11, 2007

Posted by Stephanie McReynolds in FYI.

Join library science students and librarians at 10 am this Saturday, April 14th, at the St. Louis Bread Company in Clayton (6701 Clayton Rd.) for a discussion about library architecture. Among other issues, we will talk about the importance of functional and appealing design when planning or renovating libraries. We will also talk about ideas for improving existing spaces when budgets are tight.

To get us started, take a look at an interesting architectural website and a few Library Journal articles that have great photos:

The Architectural Record offers overviews, photos, and floor plans of various library designs. Take a look at the libraries that interest you.

Learn about a New Orleans public library renovation post Katrina.

Check out a remodeled academic library in Louisville.

See a child focused design at a public library in White Plains, New York.

Get some ideas for developing better teen spaces in a school or public library.

We hope to see you Saturday!
