From LAPL:

The Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) seeks proposals from qualified firms to lead an extensive, system-wide planning and development process to create a Library Facilities Master Plan to guide the LAPL for the next 10 to 20 years. The Plan must be aligned with LAPL’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan and be designed to ensure optimal performance, utility, adaptability, and comfort of facilities and resources for Library employees and patrons.
