Seekonk Library Study to Present First Look at Possible Building Designs
Seekonk residents will get to see drawings of how their public library building might look in the future at a public meeting on Wednesday, May 11. This will be the fourth and final meeting in a series of public discussions with the library planning and design team from Tappe Architects. The meeting will start at 7:00 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at the library.
The design team will present preliminary building designs which are based on the conceptual design options discussed at a previous public meeting on March 29. All of the design options being considered are for an improved facility on the library???s current site at 410 Newman Avenue. The three options include renovating the building and expanding it to a second floor, renovating the building and expanding it towards Seekonk Meadows, and constructing a new library facility within the footprint of the existing building. These initial architectural drawings will help the town???s Library Facilities Study Committee decide which of these options is the most feasible for future development.
According to Library Director Peter Fuller, the drawings will help the residents to better visualize the spaces called for in the library???s building program. Mr. Fuller notes that public input is critically important at this phase of the process, and that both the design team and the committee are eager to hear comments from the public.
