Madrona-Sally Goldmark Branch Architecture
The renovated Madrona-Sally Goldmark Branch was the 26th project completed under the "Libraries for All" building program.
The renovation was designed by Heliotrope Architects and built by Cope Construction Co.
About the Building
During the 2008 renovation, the interior was opened up with the addition of a steel beam. The children’s story time area and holds pickup were separated.
To improve visibility, the main entry moved north toward East Union Street. The former main entry became a bay window. You can sit on a storyteller's bench inside the branch and look out the window at the landscape.
An exterior book drop was added and a canopy protects patrons from the weather.
The roof was replaced with a new composition shingle roof, along with new gutters and downspouts. The exterior brick was cleaned, tuck-pointed and acid-washed.
