Hamburg Public Library

This year the Hamburg Public Library added a modern circular addition to their existing 1966 building. The goal was to bring the library into the 21st century not only with furniture but with a complete change in policy. With the incorporation of a coffee café, teen media and community rooms, the Hamburg Library has transitioned from just a library to a lively community center which now encourages eating, drinking and communication between visitors. With the inclusion of bright colors, an influx of natural light from the skylight and large windows, and new comfortable furniture, the space now boasts a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.  


The coffee café hosts a whimsical setting alive with color and exceptional artwork intensified by the neutral palette of the HON Flock tables and Haworth Very chairs and stools. Transitioning from the café to the community room is made seamless with matching Very seating. The playful environment of the computer spaces are enhanced with brightly colored Community Classmate II chairs for both adults and children. 

Arcadia Nios lounge pieces successfully marry the original mid-century modern design with a more contemporary styling. Their application throughout the space allows for relaxation during collaboration; in the alcoves Nios permits appreciation of nature through window gazing as well as the ability to overlook the pedestrian areas in the library....Read Full Case Study

About the Cause: 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) focuses on finding cures and ensuring accessibility of treatment for patients suffering from various types of blood cancers. As there are no preventative measures or early screening available, LLS directs its attention towards promising research. In addition to successful research projects, they are the leading provider of information, support, and education to patients, families, and healthcare professionals. 

Getting Involved:

"In March my mother was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), a white blood cell cancer characterized by increased and unregulated myeloid cells in the bone marrow which accumulate in the blood. Months before her diagnosis, she exhibited symptoms that were believed to have been from a severe ongoing flu, until tests were ordered and the real illness was discovered. It has been determined that reciprocal translocation occurred causing two of her chromosomes to break apart and rearrange resulting in CML. Since blood cancers require lifelong treatment, LLS has been a valuable resource for ongoing education and support. It has been exceptionally helpful for finding resources to offset the cost of monthly chemotherapy, as insurance only covers a very small percentage. My family and I will be participating in the LLS Light The Night Walk fundraiser on Sept. 25th in Delaware Park as Kathy's Kancer Krushers as we do our part to help raise money to fund education and research for treatment and cures."
