The renovation sought to improve the Library by the addition of a lower entrance enclosure, front patio and landscaping modifications, associated interior reconfiguration of the lobby and circulation desk area, relocation of the interior stairs connecting the upper and lower levels, and infill of the floor opening between the two levels.
The renovation will improve:

  • Acoustics – reducing unwanted noise from patrons
  • Safety – easier to navigate primary stair
  • Sightlines – from a patron wayfinding perspective and from a staff visibility to patrons and entry/exterior
