Humphries Poli Architects, in collaboration with Rangeview Library District, will put their unique touch on these renovations, providing the Perl Mack community with an Anythink-style community living room the district has become known for. The 1975 building will receive a full renovation and an addition of 1,800 square feet, radically modernizing the existing facility with sustainable technology and vibrant library design.

As a way to open up the library to the entire community, a new neighborhood entrance is being added to the north side of the building along El Paso Boulevard. A children’s area is planned for the west side of the building, and the library will also include a teen space, computer lab, renovated program space and updated staffing areas. Along with a simplified parking lot, the south side of the building will include a beautiful porch for all to enjoy.

Sustainable features of this renovated facility include geothermal heating and cooling, day lighting, use of recycled materials and cradle-to-cradle design, and a community garden planned for the west side of the property. The tall, sloping roof of the facility also allows for a possible future photovoltaic array.

The renovated Anythink Perl Mack will reopen to the public in spring 2011. Check local newspapers and for details in early 2011.
