Updated, Interactive Children's Library in Plainfield, IN


Kimberly Bolan and Associates, in collaboration with Lehner Designs, recently planned and redesigned the 8,100 SF children's room of the Plainfield-Guilford Township Library in Plainfield, IN.
Entrance into the Renovated Children's Room

The overall goal was to c
reate an updated, interactive, 21st century environment with broad appeal to children ages 0 through 12 as well as parents and caregivers.  The new space is "zoned" into various areas including an early literacy/toddler area, a social space for young school-aged children and pre-teens, a study area, and a creative center called the Imagination Hub and Art Zone

This budget-friendly redesign 
included minimal construction, the re-use of the library's existing steel shelving, the re-purposing of its large 1987 service desk, which now serves as part of the Imagination Hub, and the inclusion of i
nteractive, hands-on activities, for all ages, throughout the room.  


This is the second space redesign project KBA has done with Plainfield-Guilford Library. Visit my Flickr site for photos of the children's space and more.
