In 2005, many academic and public library facilities in New Orleans were badly damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. This tour will visit libraries that were renovated or constructed since that time, including the recently-expanded Howard-Tilton Memorial Library at Tulane University, the award-winning Rosa F. Keller Library and Community Center, and one or two other New Orleans Public Library branches including the new Nora Navra branch (construction schedule permitting). Librarians and designers involved in each project will be our guides and discuss the special challenges they faced. Registration includes bus transportation and boxed lunch.
