Northside Branch Tour - Transformation & Community Building

New libraries require new thinking about how to be flexible, transparent, efficient and relevant in a digital era. The Columbus Metropolitan Library’s new Northside Branch meets this reality in dramatic fashion, with a cantilevered “reading loft” that engages High Street, shelters a public plaza at the main entrance, grants visitors an elevated view of the city, and shifts between library-specific functions and outside events as needed.

The interior centers on a “living room” that houses the library’s main collection. Washed with indirect daylight from high above, it is outfitted with comfortable reading zones, study nooks, a coffee bar and an aquarium. Additional spaces — the meeting rooms, children’s zone, teen reading area and quiet lounge — ramp up from the living room and culminate in the reading loft.
