Treat them as prototypes for your next building project or think tanks for great design ideas that will support your library’s mission. LJ’s ten New Landmark Libraries embody the best of what public libraries are today and what they might be tomorrow. The Landmarks, named by a team of 16 expert judges and announced in the May 15 issue of Library Journal, are profiled in the Library By Design supplement. They are flexible. They are green. They pack a lot of “wow.” In this webcast, four architects and moderator Louise Schaper, New Landmark Libraries project lead, will take you into their winning buildings.
