Orange Public Library Renovation

Thematically relating to the uniqueness of the city’s early history, this major renovation project provides a contemporary image and state of the art technology to an aging 37 year-old facility.  At the heart of the new space plan is an information plaza with workstations for the reference and children’s librarians and a state of the art technology center with twenty computer workstations.  An enlarged children’s area named the “Kid’s Zone” features a “tree-trunk” playhouse for story time and an interior “orange-tree grove” for the picture book area.  The building renovation also included a complete seismic retrofit and technology distribution upgrade.
