The project encompassed a renovation for the city's largest and most cherished library branch, situated in a high-need residential neighborhood characterized by a significant youth and transient population. The building, essential to the community, required repairs, and its interior layout posed challenges in meeting the diverse needs of the residents .A full gut renovation was completed, transforming the branch library to better serve the community. Some considerations in the redesign encompassed strategic relocation of the circulation desk to enhance sight lines, traffic flow, and security; a redesigned entry and storefront to create a more inviting atmosphere and foster a stronger connection to the neighborhood; and a celebration of community pride through the incorporation of original community artwork and a new outdoor mural.
