SOMERSET COUNTY LIBRARY
Bridgewater, New Jersey
Addition and Renovation Project. This library serves as the headquarters for the Somerset County Library System. The original facility was constructed in 1980 and the 45,000 SF renovation/ addition was completed by FVHD, P.C. in 1999. Due to the success of the public meeting space at this facility which accommodated concerts and gallery exhibitions, additional multi-purpose space was provided in the interior renovations to accommodate the hundred or so attendees at these events. Relocation and enlargement of access to the public toilets and new security control allows space utilization during non-library hours. The expansion also includes a new adult reference area, administrative offices, charge desk, children's area, young adults, patron reading areas, customer service desk and enclosed inventory and gallery spaces.
Addition/Renovation Area: 45,159 SF
