Nominate a Library

 How can you help?
We’re asking our friends from around the world to nominate ‘must see’ libraries in their respective countries.  You can nominate a library for a number of reasons – the library building, the location, the innovative programs or the community engagement.

What do I have to do?
Complete  1001 Libraries to See Before You Die and email it to the IFLA Public Libraries Section together with a maximum of three images of the Library you’re nominating (contact details are at the end of the form). Please sent the form as a text file, not a PDF

We’re also looking for best practice examples of Library Building websites and guidelines to link to from our site.

What’s the deadline?
The project was launched in Lyon at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress on 17 August 2014. This is only the beginning.  While we don’t anticipate there will be 1001 libraries for your travel list straight away with a little help from our friends we hope to soon be there.

Where do I send it?
This completed form should be sent to the IFLA Public Libraries Section Information Coordinator Jan Richards at

What if I see a mistake in my entry?
We apologise in advance for any omissions. Just contact Jan (see above) and she’ll make the adjustments.

We look forward to hearing from you!
