Proposed Floor Plans

If you’ve visited the library recently,  you may have noticed display boards on each floor with proposed floor plans.  If you haven’t had a chance to see them, you can view the plans here:

The proposed plans are based on feedback from our March Space Planning sessions, conducted with the help of Kimberly Bolan and Associates.  (See their Facility Recommendations.)
