Baltimore County Public Library Towson Branch
Rubeling & Associates provided services for the interior renovation / reconfiguration and exterior enhancement of this prominent building in downtown Towson. Exterior building alterations were completed to eliminate water leakage problems in the concrete and to bring the facility up to the standards of the area’s streetscape program. In addition to staining the exterior walls, a balcony was demolished, a reading garden designed into alcove space, and an electronic message board installed at the main entrance.
Interior enhancements included the Children’s area sectioned off by a full-height castle wall, teen reading area on the mezzanine level with new furniture and work tables, quiet area moved to a secluded location, DVD / CDs located closer to check out, and sitting areas with all new furniture. Changes to administration areas involved reconfiguration of the open space layout of three departments on the first floor into a cubicle system, and the subdivision of a break room to add a storage space.
