Project Details

Visitors to the Bridgeton Trails Branch will first notice the new plaza with native plantings at the entrance to the branch. Once inside, a large circulation desk welcomes patrons. The enhanced children’s area features a colorful, red entryway. Kid-sized shelving, called browsing bins, allows 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. Teens will have a designated space also, with bold furniture. Two private study rooms have been added to the branch, as well as 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.
