Grand Glaize Branch

Grand Glaize Branch - Children's AreaProject Status:

Completed. Opened to the public September 13, 2018. The branch is located at 1010 Meramec Station Road, Manchester, MO 63021.

Project Details:

The renovated Grand Glaize Branch features a 5,500 square feet addition on the west side of the building. The glass enclosed expansion has allowed for a larger children’s area and community meeting room. Walnut accents and calming shades of blue and grey are used throughout the interior of the branch. Architectural light fixtures, new windows and updated furniture give the space a modern and welcoming feel.

The new children’s area is brightly decorated in shades of red and orange and includes kid-friendly furniture, interactive learning stations and several reading nooks. The teen space features a textured wall mural, fun furniture and computers. The renovated branch includes a computer lab, where patrons can take free classes on a variety of technology related topics. Other highlights include two updated community meeting rooms, a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines; a café area with tables, a laptop bar and vending machines; a quiet reading area; and three private study rooms. New shelving, furniture and carpeting has been installed throughout the branch.
