Background

The Loussac Renewal is a large, multi-year project that will be completed in multiple phases. The first phase, a facility master plan, began in April 2012. RIM Architects has assembled an extraordinary team of designers, planners and library experts from across the country to develop an inspiring long-term vision for the facility and launch the generational renewal of our beloved community landmark. The second phase of the project, a design outcome of the master planning effort, will be a new main building entry signaling a new front door to enhance customer service, to create community engagement, to be climate sensitive, and to provide safety and accessibility.

 

The generational renewal process begins on the heels of the 25th Anniversary of the Z.J. Loussac Library on Sept. 14, 2011 and is a leading recommendation of the 2010 Library Community Plan. A consistent message from the 6,000 community participants was that a transformational renovation of the Loussac Library is critical to ensuring that the Library can remain relevant and competitive in the twenty-first century.

 

The plan depends on a high level of community engagement and we need your support! The Facility Master Plan process will have several opportunities for community engagement, including workshops and online forums. For more information, contact: loussac@anchoragelibraryfoundation.org
