ST. LOUIS COUNTY LIBRARY DISTRICT SAMUEL C. SACHS BRANCH

Bond Architects renovated five St. Louis County Library (SLCL) branch locations as part of the Phase 1B - Part 2 projects for the St. Louis County Library (SLCL) Master Plan, including the Samuel C. Sachs Branch. Updates at the Sachs Branch include a complete overhaul of the interior space. An oversized canopy leads into the new children's area, which can be seen from any point in the branch. The enhanced Children's Area also features browsing bins that allow kids to select their own books, as well as special furniture for families to read and do activities together, and a family restroom.

Teens have a designated space also, with computers and fun furniture. Three private study rooms were added to the branch, as well as a new computer lab, a quiet reading room, a laptop bar, a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines, and a vending area. A revamped community meeting room is available for use by individuals and organizations. In addition, the relocation of the staff workroom towards the building entrance better accommodates returns and deliveries.
