REIMAGING THE SECOND FLOOR; GREAT COMMUNITIES CREATE
Over the past two years the Goodnow Library Foundation has been working with staff, community members, donors, an architect and a library designer to develop plans for a ‘reimagining’ of the library’s second floor. Identifying community needs, we have created a plan for more efficient and flexible space as well as new areas to gather for work, study and creative learning. Discovering the future of the library’s second floor, our plans will include renovating the teen space, creating an innovative NOWLab, and preserving Sudbury’s historical space and archives.
With your help we can bring the following plans to life:
Renovation of Teen Spaces, upgrading their furniture, and making collaborative study spaces work better.
Creation of an Innovative NOW Lab, a dedicated space for programming, designing, building, and tinkering where users of all ages will explore new technology and engage in expressive and creative projects and art. The NOW Lab will serve as an idea hub and provide the community with the tools and technology to imagine and create in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).
Creation of a Collaboration Area, offering patrons meeting space optimally designed for video conferencing, mentor meetings and presentations.
Preservation of Sudbury History and Archives, protecting our legacy, and opening the beautiful Historical Room as another space for the community to gather and collaborate.
