To encourage excellence in the architectural design and planning of libraries, the AIA and the American Library Association/Library Leadership and Management Association created this award to distinguish accomplishments in library architecture.
The deadline for the 2013 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards program has passed.
The official announcement for the 2013 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards will be in AIArchitect on May 24, 2013.
Recipients and submitters will be notified by late April of the results using the email addresses provided in the online submission forms.
