The New Claverack Library Needs You!
After carefully analyzing the former firehouse footprint, library specialists Paul Mays, Lisa Hayes and Steven Rowland of Butler Rowland Mays Architects, LLP, proposed a variety of concepts to address the current and future needs of the Library.
The design includes:
- a large downstairs gallery for arts and cultural programming and performances;
- generous meeting space to accommodate area non-profit community groups, associations and agencies;
- a dedicated children’s room with ample space for the children’s book collection, comfortable seating, children-centric computers, flexible programming space, and an area for arts and crafts projects;
- ample room for our fiction and non-fiction book collection, as well as DVD and audio book collections;
- elevator access between the two floors;
- a separate teen space;
- a small meeting room to be used for tutoring and general use by non-profit community groups, associations and agencies;
- appropriate space for our valuable local history collection;
- spacious computer work space;
- adequate table space and seating areas throughout, including flexible and comfortable seating in bay windows;
- an expanded staff work area and break space.
