Project Description


The Charles B. Phillips Public Library District hired Williams Architects to undertake an expansion and renovation project in conformance with a Library Building Program developed by Dr. Frederick Schilpf. The program called for expanding and renovating the existing building in two phases; Phase I of the expansion will include the construction of the new community room and required support spaces, including a vestibule that permits access to the community room when the rest of the library is closed, new restrooms to meet code requirements, and a storeroom to replace the shed that will be removed during Phase I construction. Phase II construction will include enlarging the adult, young adult, and children’s areas of the library and the provision of improved workspaces for library staff.
