The annual award celebrates new and exciting public libraries from all over the world. 

Entries must have been built between 1 January 2021, and 31 December 2021 - or be located in a building not previously used as a library. The closing date for applications is 29 April 2022. The judges are looking for a new library, anywhere in the world, that best combines open, functional architecture with creative IT solutions and considers both digital developments and local culture.

The award, along with a cash prize, will be presented at the 87th IFLA World Library and information Congress in Dublin this July. More information and details of how to apply can be found here.
