For many years, the Goddard Library has been in need of a facelift. The Building housing the library is over 40 years old and, even though the library reading room space with its large windows is a beautiful, open space, the furniture and functionality of the room needed a change. A new design was proposed, creating a flexible, multipurpose, collaboration center within the Library reading room space. This presentation will highlight some of the design considerations and the process of how different organizations within Goddard worked together to achieve a common goal and the long road it took to achieve these goals.
