The City of Norfolk hired APMA to study its existing public library and devise a plan for an improved facility that considered projected space and technological needs over the next twenty years. The information gathered included extensive community feedback, making the case for a renovated and expanded facility that would serve the city for decades to come. In Phase Two APMA worked with city, steering committee, and library staff to confirm the program before refining the space plan and building design. The final building is an inspiring new space that nearly doubled the collection capacity; included dedicated space for children and young adults; and added a reorganized main entrance, a secure exterior courtyard, a maker’s space and heritage room. A new community room is available to the general public outside library hours. The team significantly increased parking capacity and made much-needed improvements that allow more natural light into the space.
