Envisioned as an “information town hall” rather than a traditional depository for books and archives, the Memphis/Shelby County Library is designed to function as a public Internet café, gathering place, and community center. Open floor plans accommodate changing technologies and provide maximum efficiency for future needs. Collections, reading rooms and services with the highest traffic are located on the first floor; research-oriented functions and archives are located on upper floors.
