Severna Park Branch Library

Severna Park, Maryland
Project type: Cultural
Tags: Interiors

Known by the community as the “space ship” library due to its circular shape, the Severna Park Library is one of the most heavily patronized branches in the Anne Arundel County Public Library system. The County determined that this branch was in need of several updates, and technology was at the top of their list. The Severna Park Branch is the first location in the County system to be equipped with a kiosk based, touch screen, multi-function, self-service center. In addition to the technology related improvements, the main collection space was rejuvenated with new finishes and furniture, the addition of WiFi counters, the replacement of outdated light fixtures with specialty lighting, and the replacement of antiquated service counters with more patron friendly units.
