PARIS, Ky., November 30, 2015 — More than a century ago, Andrew Carnegie envisioned libraries would bring books and information to all people. One of the greatest challenges his libraries face is to meet the needs of a 21st-century user with a 19th-century facility. EOP’s renovation of the Paris-Bourbon County Public Library returns it to its former glory but adds wireless connectivity throughout, abundant natural light in a flexible and unified space for increased library programming.
The Herald-Leader writes about the renovation which replaces an incongruous addition (seen below) with the modern addition.
