This paper examines the impact of architectural and interior design on communicating the role and philosophy of the public library. It further analyzes the use of public built space to understand the ways in which the interaction between a library patronage and its design reveal how the contemporary library is understood and used by the public.  This study is based within the theories of public space as an important sphere of unique interaction and possibility.
