This renovation of the main library of the City of Waynesboro renovated the existing 28,000 SF library originally constructed in 1969. Our work started with a programming and planning study that engaged library administration, city leaders, and representatives from the Library Foundation and Friends of the Library.
The Waynesboro Library renovation accommodates a program and activity area for children, an office area for staff, and a storage area for program supplies. The renovation also included creation of a large room for local history/genealogy, smooth traffic flow for patrons and staff, flexible space, quiet study areas, and computer and reference areas. A reading area was created close to the front door with sufficient seating where patrons can read the daily newspapers and magazines, grab a cup of coffee at the coffee stand or browse the small gift shop.
The Waynesboro Library renovation was designed in partnership with Tappé Architects, library planners. Together, we have a strategic relationship allowing us to bring the best, 21st Library design to the communities they serve.
