Preserving Historic Libraries

Libraries continue to play an important role in today’s communities. They provide access to information and resources, support literacy and education, promote lifelong learning, and serve as a community gathering space. And, historic libraries are often valuable cultural and historical landmarks in their own right. From preserving their original architecture and art to conserving rare documents and books, libraries play an important role in safeguarding irreplaceable treasures.

“We have collaborated with EverGreene on several projects over the past 15 years and consistently valued their guidance, unparalleled quality of work, and innovative approach to any twist and turns. We are deeply grateful for revitalizing our historic library and bringing it back to life! ”
Brian J Turschmann, General Manager, The Cosmopolitan Club
