The Sunnyside Library Renovation project breathed new life into this existing 1962 building. The improvements include all new finishes throughout, new ceilings, lighting (both standard and decorative) and restrooms. The existing meeting room was opened up with the addition of windows and made welcoming through the addition of a fireplace wall. This space is anticipated to host activities such as special children’s programs, book club meetings and home school gatherings. All of the cabinetry was replaced using a combination of repurposed fixtures donated by Solarity Credit Union which was augmented by new. A defined Kid’s Area was created and features a custom designed three dimensional dragon themed mural. The new Teen Area includes two Study Rooms which provide space for group project work, tutoring and any number of learning opportunities.
