Description from plan

"Library Plaza is intended to provide an outdoor public space for citizens and library patrons to gather, read, play, and relax. The space can be used for library programming, serve as a community event space, and provide a much needed place for passive and active recreation. Library Plaza should be designed in collaboration with library staff, patrons, neighbors, and area schoolchildren. The Plan shows the plaza location behind the existing parking area, however, opportunities for the plaza should be explored on all adjacent properties. As mentioned in the Conservation Chapter, Library Plaza could serve as the Central Square for Rio29."
