Moody Engineering is providing site design for a new 10,000 sq. ft. branch library in the northeast side of Columbus, Ohio. Formerly the smallest of the branch libraries at 6,000 sq. ft. there was a need to create a larger more accessible community library and fit the various program spaces into a small footprint. Moody engineering provided overall site development and permitting as well as City of Columbus Drawer E, stormwater and water services plans. The site improvements required City of Columbus zoning permits and filing an Notice of Intent (NOI).
The program includes, more public computers, a larger Homework Help Center , a dedicated Ready for Kindergarten area, larger community gathering space and additional parking. In addition to a garden overlook accessing park space and bike trails, this single-story, $3.85 million library also has a drive-up book drop and pick up window.
