Course Description: The Providence Public Library conducted a major renovation of its facility at 150 Empire Street in Providence, RI to better meet the needs of the community and the existing collections. The THINK AGAIN Building Transformation reconfigured the 1954 portion of the building into a modern information and gathering space, updated and reconnected the Donald J. Farish auditorium, and created a new climate-controlled home for the library’s special collections, which include numerous rare and historic volumes. https://www.provlib.org/construction-gallery/
