King County Library System

Library Connection at Crossroads Mall

SHKS Architects redesigned the KCLS Crossroads branch to create an efficient and vibrant space at the Crossroads Mall in Bellevue. An automated materials handling unit was incorporated within the library and integrated into the exterior book return. The machine is visible at the library's entry, creating an engaging focal point for both children and adults.
