New Castle Library

A4's renovations to the New Castle Branch Library are complete and the public explored their new community hub at the Grand Opening on April 14th. Usable square footage more than doubled from 5,000 to 11,000 square feet, the number of public computers nearly quadrupled from 6 to 23, and new community and study rooms will improve the diversity of uses in the library. The $2.4 million project also includes a living room style reading area anchored by a fireplace, a dedicated children's section, a new accessible public entry, greatly expanded staff work areas, and 9.3 kW of solar photovoltaics on the roof. The project is currently being evaluated for LEED certification.
