St. Anthony Library building project


September 11 - December 16, 2016

About the project

Improvements to the St. Anthony Library include a larger meeting room and new interactive learning space in the children’s area. Ceiling and interior walls were reconstructed to open up the library. Comfortable seating areas were created with natural light and power outlets. Carpeting, furniture and shelving were replaced and computers rearranged to support both individual and collaborative work. New automated materials handling equipment and a work room reconfiguration improved behind-the-scenes efficiencies.
