The 7,000 sf library will receive interior finish upgrades starting with the children’s books and program area. A successful Story Time Program has led to constrained space. BVH identified different shelving configurations to provide open floor space that allows additional children and guardians to participate. New finishes throughout the area coupled with appropriately sized furniture will support the needs of the children’s library director.
The adult and teen collection areas will be refreshed with new interior finishes. The existing shelving will be rotated 90 degrees to allow for better sight lines, daylight access, and open floor space for additional seating options. The library director envisions a highly flexible common space where the staff can reorganize furniture to accommodate any size of gathering. The furniture must be comfortable with power options to support your device culture. BVH added a two-sided gas fireplace in the commons area to reinforce the library is a place to hang out and feel comfortable.
