Charging stations

The library needs to have charging stations like major airports. Nearly everyone looks for a place to charge cell phones. A dedicated laptop area would be helpful also. Wandering all over the building to find outlets near seating is inconvenient.

Parking deck with staff parking on the top

Multi-floor parking deck with staff parking on the top with a staff and deliveries only access from the deck to the fourth floor would enable materials to be moved into and out of the building without dragging them through the entire library. This would increase the parking for the entire library and lessen the noise and distraction in the library.

Innovation Lab Makerspace

Let's have a space for the public with cutting edge technology such as 3D printers and laser cutters. It would be an area like Chicago Public Library's maker space--"a version of a hackerspace or makerspace, a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in technology and science, come together to learn and collaborate."

Glass Studio Box

The inclusion of glass walled studio space for hands-on workshops/programming, artists/designers/filmmakers in residence, and large eye catching pieces and graphics for library programming or for gallery exhibits. The space should be highly visible from the street as well as from within the library.
