Australian Library Design Conference 2017

Event description

The Australian Library Design Awards have been created to showcase the best in contemporary library interiors and exteriors in Australia, and to celebrate the investment in libraries made by our nation's institutions, corporations, local, state and territory governments.

They have been developed in the context of other competitions internationally, including the American Institute of Architects/American Library Association Library Building Awards and the Danish Agency for Culture Model Programme for Public Libraries Public Library of the Year Award.

The entries, shortlisted and winning designs will provide case studies in excellent library design for the 21st Century. They will be submitted for consideration for the UK’s Designing Libraries website. There will also be media coverage for the finalists.

The awards are organised by the Australian Library and Information Association in partnership with the Australian Public Library Alliance and Council of Australian University Librarians. The organising committee includes senior library leaders from Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, acting on behalf of colleagues nationally.

More than 30 stunning libraries have been entered for the inaugural Australian Library Design Awards 2017. Public, school, academic and special libraries all feature in the entries. The winners will be announced at the library design conference to be held on Monday 19 June 2017.
