The goal of this project was to design a unique children’s library that could compete with retail bookstores and provide the latest in technology for its community. The atmosphere of the Children’s Library is distinctly different from all other areas of the library and provides the hands-on quality of a children’s museum. The “Trove” entrance entices young imaginations to see what lies beyond the portal. The library is filled with moving images, words and iridescent lights. Colors are bold and influenced by the forest, ocean, and sky. Images and objects of science, history, and art spread throughout the space. Themed reading nooks, meeting rooms and technology spaces create opportunities to engage and excite both young and mature minds.
