Description

This project will provide for a comprehensive rehabilitation of this historic library to include conversion of the attic into a finished second floor, renovation of the first floor, and the addition of a finished basement, an elevator, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant restrooms, and egress stairs. The rehabilitated facility will be able to accommodate more attendees and more types of programming and services than are possible in the current facility.

Estimated Schedule

A draft Concept Plan was reviewed by the County and the Noyes Children's Library Foundation in the Summer of 2013 and agreed upon as the basis for the project design. Initial soil bore testing was completed in late Fall 2013, indicating there were no major problems anticipated. Design began in FY17, and construction will commence when the necessary funds for the complete project are successfully raised by the Noyes Children's Library Foundation. The project has been submitted to the Maryland Historic Trust (MHT) for the review and creation of a Memorandum Of Agreement (MOA) between the MHT, the County, and the Foundation. The MOA is expected to be helpful for private fundraising.

Cost Change

Justification

The Noyes Library is a small, historically-designated library with services specifically focused on pre-kindergarten education and early childhood (infants through approximately age 8). The small scale and intimate setting of the library are unique and provide a signature experience for children, but the building is not ADA compliant. In 2010, the County proposed a modest effort that would have addressed the ADA issues in the most basic manner possible, as well as made small changes to the library layout that would have positively impacted programming and service offerings. Since that time, the County and the Foundation discussed a more comprehensive rehabilitation of the Noyes Library for Young Children that preserved the library's unique, small-scale, intimate experience, while making substantial improvements to the building that supported use by persons with disabilities, new space for program preparatory and collection work by staff, and additional space for programs. Via this project, the County Executive is proposing a partnership to support this enhanced vision of the Noyes Library for Young Children.

Fiscal Note

The project is to be funded by County General Obligation (GO) Bonds and private funds that will be raised by the Noyes Children's Library Foundation according to the requirements of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the County and the Noyes Children's Library Foundation which codifies the fundraising and project plan. In addition, Current Revenue funding of $300,000 in FY17 and $200,000 in FY18 has been moved from Capital Improvement Grants for the Arts and Humanities from Cost Sharing project P720601. The construction phase will not begin until the Noyes Children's Library Foundation completes its fund raising and provides the construction funding in full to the County. An increased cost share related to the project's cost increase must be negotiated per the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding between the County and the Noyes Children's Library Foundation.
