Suzan Lami, founding principal of LGA, has fond memories of visiting the Monessen Public Library as a child. The library had not changed since that time, nearly 50 years ago. LGA was tasked with the renovation and modernization of this community landmark. We updated the sparse and outdated lighting design, and created a space more suited to the new roles that libraries play in communities; we included a tech zone, a community focused seating area, and a revamped children's and teen space. This new design will allow the library to serve the community for at least another 50 years.
