In 2015 HBM worked with the Stark County District Library to develop a Visioning Assessment of their facilities exploring opportunities to incorporate new service models throughout the system in response to changes in library trends and community needs. The 7-branch reimagining process began in 2020 with anticipated completion in 2023. These phased renovation projects apply successful and tested design and functional solutions while still maintaining neighborhood individuality in the arrangement of spaces and programmatic elements.

The North Branch renovation brings a new layout to the existing 2-story building. Modern finishes are used to create a brighter interior while adapting the unique architecture of this building. Mobility is incorporated both in the service points and in the updated Business Center. Graphic window film is used to bring a sense of privacy to the glassy and technology-rich enclosed study rooms. Existing lighting was replaced with energy-efficient fixtures. Staff work areas have been renovated for improved functionality and efficiency. The lower-level meeting room has also been updated with new finishes and collaborative technology.
