Cliff Cave Branch - Interior Photo

Project Status:


Expected Completion Date:

Opened to the public September 21, 2016.

Project Details:

Visitors to the Cliff Cave Branch will first notice the new entrance, which is now located on the north side of the building. A veranda overlooks the native plants and grasses that surround the entrance. The new, open floor plan gives the branch a bright, airy feel. The enhanced children's area features a colorful, striped portal that leads into the space. An oversized reading nook will be a popular spot for kids and parents to cozy up with a book. New shelving, called browsing bins, has been installed and will allow children to more easily select their own books. The space also features special furniture for families to read and do activities together, as well as a family restroom. A bold, orange soffit marks the teen space, which includes computers and comfy furniture. A new 20-foot window in the rear of the branch provides views of the Cliff Cave Community Garden. Two private study rooms have been added to the branch, as well as a new computer lab, a quiet reading room, a laptop bar, a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines, and a vending area. A revamped community meeting room with a projector, sound system and white board will be available for use by individuals and organizations. New shelving, furniture and carpeting has been installed throughout the branch.
