The Concord Free Public Library Expansion is Johnson Roberts Associates’ third project for the Concord Public Libraries. In 2005 and 2011, we renovated and expanded the Concord Free Public Library and the Fowler Branch Library, respectively. Currently, Johnson Roberts Associates is designing an expansion of the main library that utilizes an adjacent historic house.
The expansion includes the restoration of the historic house’s exterior and the addition of a link to the current library. The new library space houses a children’s library, a wifi café, and a maker space. Adjacent to the expansion is a new outdoor garden. Additionally, renovations to the existing library space create a multipurpose meeting room, a teen room, and study spaces.
