Event Details

A new 30,000 square-foot facility fulfills the library and community needs of 80,000+ users speaking more than 57 languages within an expanding immigrant population. The combination of program and green spaces provides a full range of services, making them visible and accessible from the street. The terracotta and stainless steel cladding is complemented by two fully glazed reading rooms, which act as beacons during the day and night: one is in the center of the public park, the other above the main entrance, immersed in the street's bustle. Their subtle differences celebrate the multiple cultural identities of the library’s patrons.
