Specifications include, but are not limited to: 1. Ascertain whether the east wing including the balcony could be enclosed
to provide a separate space where teenagers could interact without disturbing
other library users. There would need to be a line of sight from the Reference
Desk so that the teens could be observed when the Teen Librarian was not in the
space. We anticipate moving the Reference Desk in the future to a more central
2. Provide information as to whether the HVAC system would have to be
changed to provide adequate heating and air conditioning to the enclosed space
and what effect, if any, it would have on the rest of the building.
3. Evaluate lighting and provide a plan to improve lighting based on how the
space will be used in the future. Some of the area’s present lighting comes from
lights that are supported by the stacks. Since we plan to remove the stacks,
lighting for that area would have to be replaced.
