BRENTWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY

Originally built in the 1950s as an addition to City Hall, Brentwood Public Library changed little over the years. In 2002, the police moved out of City Hall, opening some adjacent space for the library to expand. The library and city administration took the opportunity to reimagine the library and improve the entrance to City Hall.

The library attracts community members of all ages and serves as a town gathering place. The circulation desk acts as a central hub where patrons have easy access to assistance and information while staff members have supervision of the entire library. A welcome area was created by enhancing the lighting design, utilizing comfortable furnishings and incorporating a soothing color palette.
