This renovation and expansion includes the addition of a 6,000-square-foot conference center and renovation of the existing 50,000-square-foot facility, built in the early 1970s. Sustainably designed to meet LEED Silver requirements, the conference center addition supplements the library's public meeting space and growing need for community meeting places with a 2,300-square-foot, 192-seat conference room and an 850-square-foot cafe.
The cafe and conference room have access to a pre-function lobby area and restrooms. The renovation offered the library an opportunity to reorganize its collection, introduce new naturally-lit reading areas, provide additional meeting rooms, and upgrade the building's infrastructure to accommodate current and emerging technology. Additionally, the renovation provides new space for the library's precious local history collection, passport offices and dedicated areas for public computers and teenage patrons.View all projects
