The Culver-Union Township Public Library has partnered with Arkos Design of Mishawaka to draw up a plan to modernize the library’s interior spaces. The project includes gathering data on how Library spaces are currently used and may be used in the future as well as a proposal for interior design solutions to address present and future priorities. Among the spaces being considered for modernization are the library’s children’s room, adult circulation and collection areas, and public meeting spaces. Within the existing building, new spaces such as a designated teen area, a business/co-working space, and private study rooms are also being considered.

Culver Library Director, Laura Jones, said “We are fortunate to partner with Arkos Design, an architectural and interior design firm specializing in library spaces. It is our hope to refresh and modernize the interior library space to improve flow and function while offering a more intuitive patron experience and a welcoming aesthetic. Feedback from the community is most valuable as we evaluate, reconfigure, and refresh the library space. We invite you to share creatively with us, assuring that your library is truly the place to be.”

The library is seeking input from residents of Culver and Union Township to help inform how the interior spaces are redesigned. A public survey has been issued and is available on the library’s website at The survey is also available online and in print at the library.
