The Dalton School Library
by IBI Group | Gruzen Samton Architects
The Dalton School Library contains one of the largest independent school collections in New York City, which includes print volumes, ebooks, videos and DVDs, sound recordings, and periodicals. Originally the school's gymnasium, the space was converted to a library in 1965. The newly renovated space contains separate libraries for Middle and High School students, while sharing a common reading room that is filled with an abundance of natural light. With moveable reference stacks and multiple seating and table layouts, the library is highly flexible to accommodate a variety of school functions on a daily basis. Technological upgrades include broader infrastructure, multi-media capability, and enhanced connectivity.
