I had the pleasure to be a part of this library remodel. When I heard that the PTA is willing to raise the money during their annual fundraiser, I offered to help with the design pro bono.
Before I started to design this library, I interviewed the Librarian, Principal and talked to teachers to find out how they would like to use their library in the future.
This is how the library looked before:
While designing the library I considered all needs and also was able to create a lot more space for books.
This is how I presented my vision. PTA was able to show these renderings to everyone who helped to raise the money.
With a lot of help from the parents, they were able to set up the furniture within 2 days. It took exactly one year from the first talk about remodeling the library until it was complete.
Here are pictures of the library after the remodel:
