A Library for the Next Generation
Anchorage has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to replace
the Loussac Library stairs with an entrance that is safe, welcoming and easy to find!
- The project addresses immediate building safety, energy efficiency and accessibility issues, and furthers the Library's goal in education, technology and connecting the community.
- The entrance project is a result of the Loussac Facility Master Plan, which was created by a team of architects, designers, technology and library experts, and thoughtful and creative input from thousands of community members.
