Transforming Main Library

We’re renovating Main Library as a community gathering place that will help revitalize our downtown neighborhood. Architects Schooley Caldwell Associates and GUND Partnership have designed an open and inviting community centerpiece:

  • Green space will connect us to Topiary Park, bringing together two downtown treasures in the Discovery District.
  • An outdoor reading area will let customers check out a book inside and go outside to enjoy it without ever leaving downtown.
  • Expanded and updated technology will better serve our customers.
  • A 21st century children’s space will enhance our Storytimes, Ready for Kindergarten and Reading Buddies programs plus others designed to help young minds.

We’ll work hard to make sure most library services will be available during construction. We’ll start in 2015 – check back for updates.

An enhanced front plaza will greet customers along Grant Ave.
