Lithgow Public Library

Additions and renovations to the Lithgow Public Library (in Augusta, Maine) modernized services and more than tripled the size of the old library. The expansion respected the original building — which is on the National Register of Historic Places — while establishing a modern library with expanded technology access. With 31,755 SF of space, the library now includes an art gallery, local history room, enlarged children’s department, community meeting room, and a new young adults section. Additionally, the updates made the library fully accessible for its 11,300 patrons.
