University Branch Architecture
The renovated University Branch is the 24th project completed under the "Libraries for All" building program. The renovation of the historic branch was designed by Hoshide Williams Architects and built by Biwell Construction Inc.
About the building
The building followed one of Carnegie's preferred designs for libraries -- main-floor reading areas and a lower-level auditorium. Its general architectural style is neo-classical. The branch has a grand entrance and formal symmetry.
High ceilings, expansive windows, and hanging lamps contribute to a sense of spaciousness. Rich detailing and use of wood throughout the interior add to the warm, historic feel.
