We’re closing off National Library Week with another favorite: the @SeattleU Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons. Built in 1964, Lemieux Library was an uninviting repository for books that lacked modern technology and functionality. The design reinvents this campus landmark by pairing a sensitive renewal of the historic structure with the addition of a light-filled learning commons, restoring the library’s central role on campus. Tour the LEED Gold certified facility as part of the A4LE PNW Conference on May 4: https://bit.ly/2GVayi5. Project completed in association with Pfeiffer Partners. Photo: Andrew Buchanan

In honor of National Library Week we’re sharing Newcastle Library, an iconic landmark at the center of Newcastle’s evolving civic village. Sited in the heart of the retail core, the library’s transparent façade and glowing Gathering Porch welcome the community inside. Eye-catching orange acrylic seating platforms allow visitors to read outside on nice days or linger over a conversation. Inside, flexible reading and meeting spaces are a comfortable destination to gain knowledge, join a community discussion, attend a reading or sink into a good book. Photo: Benjamin Benschneider
