Durham County’s Main Library, located in downtown Durham, is undergoing a major expansion and renovation. At 37 years old, this much needed transformation is the final step of the regional library plan implemented by the County more than ten years ago. The library footprint will be reconfigured for ease of use and enhanced visibility throughout the building. A prominent outdoor public plaza will be incorporated for programs and events. A technology center will support several activities including business training, cultural education, and teaching/networking. An expanded North Carolina Collection will also be included. Falcon was selected to provide materials testing and special inspections during construction.
