Back in 1980, SHP designed a large addition to the Lebanon Library. 35 years later, SHP was back to transform the library basement into a state-of-the-art technology center. The 2,550 square foot renovated space is meant to serve as a learning zone, collaborative space and quiet area.
- Individual training spaces. The center’s main reference desk offers a lower level where library staff can hold one-on-one sessions with patrons to teach them how to access library materials on an electronic reader such as an iPad or Kindle.
- Large moveable glass partitions on the conference center walls provide transparency throughout the space. When meetings are not taking place the glass doors are opened and the room functions as a study or work space.
- Film peel-and-stick art installations applied to the glass surfaces serve as a visual cue and safety feature for library users, to distinguish where the glass is.
- An exterior brick color is applied to the interior palette to preserve the historic nature of the building.
