Building Projects - Rock Road Branch

Rock Road Branch

Project Status:

Completed. Opened to the public January 22, 2016.

Project Details:

The transformation at the Rock Road Branch is one of the most dramatic in the first phase of construction projects at SLCL. An additional 4,000 square feet have been added to the building-making way for an additional meeting room (two total for the branch) and a substantially larger children's area. The front of the building has a new entrance and façade-most of the brick has been replaced with glass to allow natural light to fill the branch. The new children's area is brightly decorated in shades of purple and includes kid-friendly furniture and interactive learning stations. Teens will have a designated space also, with computers and fun furniture. The renovated branch features a glass enclosed computer lab, where patrons can take free classes on a variety of technology related topics. Other highlights include a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines; a café area with tables, a laptop bar and vending machines; a quiet reading area called the "living room;" and two private study rooms. Renovated locations will also receive new computers, furniture and carpeting. Comfortable seating areas are available throughout the branch.
