The quest to identify the the most inspiring and innovative public libraries names ten winning public libraries and ten honorable mentions. Library Journal is proud to present its inaugural list of New Landmark Libraries. These ten public libraries, plus ten Honorable Mentions, will inspire and inform any building project.
At LJ, after years of covering new library construction and renovations and exploring innovations in design, we realized that librarians could use a master list of the best libraries to study, in person or virtually, for models and insight into coming trends. From a national pool of nominations, the judges chose ten New Landmark Libraries and ten Honorable Mentions. http://www.libraryjournal.com/lj/home/890303-264/ljs_new_landmark_libraries.html.csp
