The library is designed to include separate children’s and adult library areas, with offices and support spaces between.

 

Special “Oz” scenes include:  

­ A tornado “slat-wall”

­ A “witch castle” in one of the former bank vaults  

­ “Tin Man” book display at the children’s circulation desk

­ “Munchkin Door”

­ “Yellow Brick Road” ceiling details

­“Emerald City” windows and mural at Librarian’s Office

The new space more than doubled the stack area available at the Library’s former location.

The Community Room accommodates banquets, receptions, and a variety of other public meetings.

The Sullivan Free Library Project in, Chittenango,

New York, designed by Teitsch-Kent-Fay Architects, P.C., involved the reconstruction of the former State Bank of Chittenango building into a vibrant new home for this growing community library

 

The project involved specific attention to incorporate the Library’s “Wizard of Oz” theme into the new space.
