The Children's Room at the Fort Washington Branch Public Library - Jennifer Sage
Description
At Fort Washington, the children's room occupied the upper story of an historic Carnegie branch library. The room was grand but over scaled for its diminutive audience. The original casework at the perimeter had charm but was in poor condition. The circulation desk -- a large corral of sorts -- was no longer needed and had become more of an obstacle within the space. Finishes were tired and lighting in the 18' high space was inadequate.
