Rock Valley College
Estelle M. Black Library Renovation
A 60,100 sq. ft. renovation transforms a dark and outdated space into a campus destination. Library user door count grew 19% within one year after project completion.
A light-filled commons area with coffee bar and lounge seating offers views into the library. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall and a skylight disperse natural light throughout the space. Study zones on both levels offer views of trees, a creek, and other campus buildings.
