Inaugural list identifies Roseville library as shaping the future of library design
Where should librarians look for inspiration and ideas when faced with the exciting-and daunting-task of redesigning a library or even building one from the ground up? They could start with Ramsey County Library in Roseville, MN. This library and nine others featuring vibrant, innovative designs were today named New Landmark Libraries by Library Journal.
The New Landmark Libraries showcase buildings that will help shape libraries for the next generation and beyond. Library Journal's New Landmark Libraries project seeks to discover groundbreaking public library buildings and establish a set of standards for library leaders to address as they build, and, in turn, strengthen the capacity of communities to design and build excellence into their public library facilities. Chosen from a national pool with submissions from large cities and small communities, the New Landmark Libraries and Honorable Mentions can be used as prototypes or think tanks for the library projects of all sizes.
