The Washington Architectural Foundation (WAF) identified eight dedicated architects who pledged their time, talents and resources on a pro bono basis to design new library spaces for the School Libraries Project.
The designs focus on transforming outdated spaces into modern libraries, with an emphasis on the library as a “public classroom.” More than one has a “performance space”; others have amphitheater seating. All will have fully stocked book and media collections as well as state-of-the art technology.
