(3 September 2018) The awards, organized by the Australian Library and Information Association in partnership with the Australian Public Library Alliance and the Council of Australian University Librarians, were created in 2017 to showcase contemporary library interiors and exteriors.
The awards are split into four categories – school library, public library, academic library and special library. A fifth award is the ALIA Member’s Choice, which in 2017 went to the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre.
Entries are open to all libraries in Australia that have been built, renovated or refurbished between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2018. Pop-up, temporary and mobile libraries are not eligible. Entries will be assessed on design, strategic relevance and impact.
The awards are supported by ArchitectureAU. For more information, go here.
