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.
