North Branch Re|imagined

Important Information

North Branch Timeline

We are beginning the project to Re|imagine our library buildings for the 21st Century, and we’re starting with North Branch! Re|imagine is our plan to make your branch an inviting space that inspires and empowers you to pursue creativity and lifelong learning.

The branch will be closed for construction for approximately five months. As soon as we are completely confident in the timeline, we'll announce our grand re-opening! We'll keep updates on this page, so be sure to check back for the latest news.

We want your library to be a place you want to spend your day. These are some of the upgrades and enhancements that your updated branch will feature:

Access:

  • Enhanced A/V technology
  • Electrical outlets and powered furniture for device charging
  • Children’s interactive tables and furniture
  • Self-check stations
  • Interactive, touch screen catalogs in public areas

Comfortable and flexible spaces:

  • New carpeting, paint, and flooring
  • New, enclosed study rooms and collaboration areas
  • New, varied furniture types with increased durability, accessibility and flexibility
  • Updated bathroom facilities

Safety and security:

  • Lower shelving to allow for better sightlines
  • Energy efficient lighting inside and out
  • Improved ADA compliance throughout the system
  • New security cameras
  • Sound quality improvements to reduce noise
Due to the pandemic, some features may not be available upon re-opening.
