Current Plans

Feedback from our customers has been a critical component in the design of the revitalized Stanley A. Milner Library. There will be more space for the services our customers need and want, including:

  • A children’s library that is more than three times the current space with hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities like coding, robotics and digital creation, an indoor play area, and more great resources to take out and enjoy.
  • A much larger Makerspace, allowing more opportunities for creating with leading-edge and emerging technologies such as 3D printing, sound and video production, and robotics, as well as new opportunities for fabrication.
  • New spaces for creative activities like music and art.
  • An additional 4,000 square feet of private study spaces and quiet reading areas, including over 1,000 square feet overlooking Churchill Square.
  • Over 2,500 square feet of added community meeting space, which will include a board room to support the growing need for collaboration and accessible meeting space.
  • A high-tech theatre supporting renowned guest speakers and performances, with easy access to the LRT and Churchill Square.
  • A multi-story interactive simulation wall, facilitating hands-on, interactive learning as well as large-scale multimedia presentations.
