1969 Renovation

The first major renovation of the building in 1969 altered the rear elevation and the interior. Air-conditioning, carpet, a vending room, an escalator, and expanded stack space were the notable features of that construction.

Library planners of the 1960's also recommended cultural changes including helping patrons build new skills, adapting flexibly to changes in education, and adopting a greater presence in the community.
