Your Library Renewed

Samuel C. Sachs Branch - Interior Photo

Project Status:


Expected Completion Date:

Opened to the public July 27, 2016.

Project Details:

Updates at the Samuel C. Sachs Branch include a complete overhaul of the interior space. An oversized canopy leads into the new children's area-which can be seen from any point in the branch. The enhanced children's area also features browsing bins that allow kids to select their own books, as well as special furniture for families to read and do activities together, and a family restroom. Teens have a designated space also, with computers and fun furniture. Three 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 are available for use by individuals and organizations. New shelving, furniture and carpeting has been installed throughout the branch, as well as a bright, new color palette.
