Family Place LibrariesT invites you to learn more about what public librarians can do to foster early literacy and learning within their own libraries and communities. This free bi-annual symposium brings together public librarians from around the nation to hear presentations from specialists in children's literature, early literacy, child development, and family support, and provides a forum for librarians to network and learn from one another.
On March 24 the Family Place LibrariesT National Symposium 2010 will be in Portland, OR.  The guest speaker and presentation will be: 
Building Blocks: Creating Space for Young Children
James R. Keller, AIA, is a partner with the multi-disciplined architectural/engineering firm VITETTA, based in Philadelphia. Mr. Keller created the VITETTA Library Design Studio in 1996. Since then, he has provided the design vision and project direction for several significant American library systems including the Free Library of Philadelphia, San Antonio Public Library, TX, Broward County Public Library, FL and Lexington Public Library, KY. Mr. Keller has also designed Libraries in South America and the Middle East and has forged international library design collaborations with Schmidt Hammer Lassen of Denmark and Foster and Partners of London.
Mr. Keller promotes functional design that supports the mission of library service and embraces architectural and interior design excellence. Mr. Keller believes that the evolving mission and nature of library service must be accommodated by flexible, creative design that renders itself through lasting architectural presence.
