Lewis and Clark Library

The Lewis and Clark Library, while maintaining a current collection of materials, needed to expand into the mezzanine area of the library, which had never been occupied.  In addition to an accessible entry, a more clearly defined entrance from both the walking mall and the parking area, and a more efficient use of parking space were required. These allowed the existing structure to be utilized to its fullest potential and to provide space for new services.  In collaboration with Jim Brown, AIA, our firm renovated and remodeled  the existing spaces to provide locations for a dedicated computer lab, a new spacious entry foyer that welcomes and gives patrons a location to pause and enjoy the company of friends, and a newly constructed reading room with a beautiful fireplace for the quiet perusal of books and magazines.
