The autumn chill has set in and “cool” things are happening at the Torrington Library! As you can see from picture one, the new entrance is being constructed about 100 feet down from the Daycoeton Place entrance. Photo two is the architect’s rendering of the finished project.
We’ve done some unique things to the entrance that you’ll notice before you even walk through the doors. Peter Wells, our architect, brilliantly mirrored the Litchfield Street entrance columns to maintain the symmetry and beauty of the original 1901 building. There is also a fully handicapped accessible ramp, perfect for those unable to use the stairs and for busy moms with strollers. When you enter through the double doors, a beautiful lobby awaits you with a new elevator.
Another development is flooring! Picture three shows still-wet concrete freshly poured for the lower level. The square structure in the middle of the shot is the pit for the new elevator! The building is beginning to shape up and we’re getting a much clearer picture of what the new space will look like!
Talk to you soon!
