Increase Floor Space and Improve Accessibility
If your wanderings have included walking through Stonington Borough, no doubt you have seen the external progress being made on the new accessible entrance. This part of the project constructed a new 700sf addition on the east side of the Library’s central section, providing an accessible entrance, elevator, and bathrooms, while also freeing up 575sf of floor space within the existing building, resulting in a total of 1,275 additional square feet of usable space that complies with Americans with Disabilities guidelines.
Refurbish and Upgrade Interior
The renovation of the Library's existing interior is designed for flexibility and user comfort. Easily configured furnishings and seating will compliment the open areas, and mobile shelving will provide functional meeting areas for individuals and groups. Enhanced electrical infrastructure and fiber-based broadband will give users up-to-date technology that connects the Library’s past, present, and future.
