LINCOLNWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY ADDITION

North suburban library addition and renovation developed to increase public service and collection capacity.

Project Details

The 7,000sf addition to the Lincolnwood Public Library enlarged by one third the usable space and permitted the reorganization and rearrangement of both staff support functions and many severely overcrowded collections. The addition permitted the Youth Services department to be properly separated from Adult Services, correcting significant acoustical problems in the former plan configuration. The building was completely renovated and reorganized to facilitate the fundamental service changes that had evolved, and the HVAC and electrical systems were completely replaced. North light clerestories were added to minimize the requirements for supplemental lighting in the public service areas.
