For the past year, GCPL has been working with the design, architect and building teams on facilities renovations and new constructions in Bainbridge and Thompson. As plans are being firmed up on the materials, design and timelines, the library would like to share the status of these projects with the community and invite citizens to preview renderings.
These dates are the fourth in a series of community conversations where library personnel, project leaders, and citizens have been invited to share their ideas on the types of features they would like to have incorporated into their libraries. “We have been gathering information from citizens for months, and as we get close to commencing with the actual building, we would like to offer another opportunity for citizens to collaborate and share their ideas,” says GCPL Director Ed Worso.
Geauga County Public Library is committed to being an excellent resource and partner in furthering the interests of the Geauga County community and its residents. Incorporating community input into building designs is an important part of the planning and building process.
GCPL invites citizens to attend the following conversations:
The design professionals from CBLH and Perkins & Will as well as the construction team from Donley’s will be on hand to share the status of the projects and answer questions.
“We remain grateful that the county passed a bond issue for capital improvements and new buildings,” Worso adds. “Providing updated, comfortable and functional library space is a top priority and we value our citizens’ input. We are on target to begin construction this year, and are excited to invite people to our facilities where they can engage, connect and inspire.”
