Library of the Future – Learning with the Participatory Library at Cedar Rapids Public Library Program Moscone Convention Center
2009 (W)
Description :

In June 2008 a destructive flood swept through the city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In the wake of the flood, a visionary group realized that the silver lining to the story was the opportunity to radically re-imagine the role a library could play in the life of the community. The focus was on creating a space that, in the words of the library director, would be “more like an Apple Store than the DMV.” The new Cedar Rapids Public Library opened in August of 2013 and the impact of that design decision has been astonishing. Before the flood, the library saw 11,000 annual visitors come through the library for meetings and special events. In contrast, during the first year of operation, the new library hosted 102,000 visitors and is on track to host 150,000 people in 2015. This panel discussion between library staff and the design team from OPN Architects will address the philosophy that drove the development of the new library, the design choices that were made and take a candid look at the results.
