LIBRARY BRANCH RE-IMAGINE

STARK COUNTY DISTRICT LIBRARY

HBM has been working with the Stark County District Library for almost 20 years, having designed or renovated most of the branches in the system during that time. In 2015 we developed a Visioning Assessment of the system, exploring opportunities to incorporate new SCDL branding and service models throughout the system in response to changes in library trends and usage patterns. Set for implementation beginning in 2020, these branch improvement projects will provide, but are not limited to:

 

  • Fewer, smaller, and mobile service points

  • Self-checkouts and self-service holds

  • Added study rooms and collaboration areas

  • Flexible material displays and shelving configurations that encourage browsing

  • Enhanced technology

  • Children’s interactive components to encourage early literacy skills

  • Updated finishes, lighting, and furniture

  • An overall updated layout that reflects usage patterns

  • Linking the facilities through system-wide branding
