It's been a busy month so far at the HBM office! From grand openings and fundraisers to tours and learning events, we wanted to share a few photos from some of the events that we've participated in this month!
The first weekend of May, several of us participated in a Putt-Putt fundraising event for Stark County District Library. We've worked with Stark County on several projects, so it was a pleasure to be a part of such an entertaining fundraiser to support their great libraries.
We also had the opportunity to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of Cleveland's beautiful Playhouse Square with IIDA Cleveland Akron for their April Professional Development Event. We toured the Palace, Ohio, and Allen theaters while discussing recent renovations, interior design, and sustainability. We want to thank IIDA and Playhouse Square for bringing us along on this unique experience!
In addition to these activities, we've had a few grand openings that we've been excited to attend. We wrapped up April with CCPL's Bay Village Branch grand opening (which, if you haven't seen the photos yet, our blog post about the grand opening can be found linked below).
Kanawha County Public Library also just had its grand opening ceremony this past Monday, and several of us made our way down to Charleston, WV to attend the highly anticipated event. After nearly two years of renovation, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to see the Charleston community get to enjoy and utilize their new library. Equipped with an Idea Lab, Sky Bridge, and spaces for everyone to work, collaborate, relax, and enjoy, the new Kanawha library was designed keeping both the community's and library's modern needs in mind. Keep your eyes peeled on our blog for photos from the grand opening!
