LLAMA BES Architecture for Public Libraries Committee (Buildings & Equipment Section) Committee
IFLA Library Building and Equipment Section Satellite Conference August 10-11
Designing modern libraries is a complex process involving many stakeholders and participants. Libraries of all types work with an almost limitless range of constituent groups for input, buy-in and successful implementation. Collaboration partners across the spectrum can include the local community, our students, faculty and campus partners, architects and designers, donors, governing bodies, local municipal, university, state and national decision makers and facilities personnel. Successful libraries and library design reflect successful collaboration.
Wednesday, August 10: 9:00 — 5:15. Reception immediately following until 7:00 pm.
Thursday, August 11: 10:00 — 5:00.
Optional: Mies Van der Rohe campus tour from 8:30—9:30am on Thursday.
Full schedule and speaker list attached.

Public libraries are increasingly responsive in developing new models of service to address 21st century community needs including service to persons experiencing mental illness, persons experiencing homelessness, patrons who are in need of medical care and families living in poverty. The California Library Association, in conjunction with the Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA), is presenting a full day preconference to share the latest best practices from across North America including innovations from Richland Library and Pima County Library that feature the addition of a public health nurse to their on-site programming. Presentations will also include Edmonton Public Library, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Madison (WI) Public Library and San Francisco Public Library to highlight the evolving impacts of social worker programs in public libraries.
