Platteville Library Block DevelopmentPlatteville, WI
The city of Platteville retained PRA to design a Public Library that acts as the cornerstone of the new whole city block development in the downtown area.
The first floor of the new library is comprised of the Adult Collections, Periodical and Media Collections. In addition to the collections, the first floor is home to the main circulation desk, copy island, staff workroom, computer pods, study tables, lounge seating, and large group study rooms. An open stairwell separates the Periodical and Media Collections from the rest of the Adult Collections and invites you to peek upstairs. The second floor houses the Children’s, Tween, and Teen Collections. The second floor also offers small study rooms, a conference room, gathering space, an art gallery, a child’s program room, and staff offices.
