Baldwin Library Building

Proposed Renovation - Lobby
Conceptual drawing of the lobby to the proposed building.

Baldwin’s new strategic plan, adopted in 2010, called for the development of a comprehensive master plan for the building. After Baldwin had presented the results of its initial work, the City Commission and Library Board established a Joint Library Building Committee (JLBC). After a year’s worth of research, the JLBC issued a Building Program, detailing the Library’s space needs.

In March 2013 the Commission accepted the Building Program and authorized the issuance of a request for proposal for architectural services. After the Commission had approved the appointment of Quinn Evans Architects (QEA), the firm worked with the JLBC to develop conceptual plans and cost estimates. In late 2013 QEA presented its plans to the Historic District Commission, Planning Board, Library Board and City Commission. On November 25, 2013, the Commission accepted the schematic designs and directed City staff to prepare ballot language for a possible bond proposal. On February 10, 2014, the Commission will decide whether to place the bond measure on the May 6 ballot.
