Morganton Public Library - Proposed Renovations & Additions
RBSA worked with Dr. Robert Burgin and Library Staff to determine the feasibility of a new or renovated HQ
library facility in Morganton. The study included an outline of the pros and cons of building a new facility on
a site vs renovating and adding onto the existing facility.
Ultimately, the county chose to explore the option to demolish, renovate and expand at the existing location. Working together Dr Burgin and RBSA evaluated the existing facility, existing programs, expanded library needs, community outreach and population growth. RBSA provided architectural deliverables in the format of an existing program with area assignments, new program with matching area needs, schematic floor plans and 3d renderings.
