#ThrowbackThursday: Completed in 2019, the remodel of the Mid-Columbia Libraries West Richland branch created a modern, well-organized, light-filled environment that appeals to all ages. The main focus included incorporating a little-used large meeting room into the main branch area and updating the spaces, finishes, and colors to promote Mid-Columbia Libraries’ current objectives and branding. A new story-time area was included, as well as an improved children’s collection and opportunities to display public art. Room for additional shelving allowed for an increased collection with thousands of new items. The bright, cheerful space was tailored for the library’s needs now and will serve readers well in the years to come.

#ThrowbackThursday Due to Spokane’s weather and poorly-draining natural turf field’s condition, Spokane Falls Community College’s infield was only for use about half the year and was not conducive for soccer play. Bernardo Wills Architects was tasked with replacing the natural grass field with a multi-use synthetic turf system. The project also included the installation of an irrigation system to cool and wash the synthetic field, and minor patch and repair work of the synthetic surfacing of the running track and field events. With these improvements, teams can utilize the field for practice and competition throughout the year in safe conditions, and more athletes will benefit from the play surface.
