Library addition prioritizes accessibility

The Steubenville Main Library’s 10,000 SF, 2-level addition features a ground-level entry and an elevator, making the library accessible to all patrons. It incorporates study rooms, a community room, reading rooms, and a children’s area. An atrium connects the addition to the historic original, and a garage houses the library’s bookmobile. The new space replaces a previous annex and garage. The project also included HVAC, plumbing, lighting, and technology upgrades in select areas of the existing building.
