PARTLY CLOUDY Frederick W. Keith, Local Archi tect, Awarded Contract for Fine Building STRUCTURE OF HANDSOME COLONIAL TYPE PLANNED Design Will be Unique and Dis tinctive—Construction to Be- gin in Spring Plans for a public library of attrac tive colonial design, unique and dis tinctive in architecture of this type, have been accepted by the Public Li brary commission for Bismarck's $25,000 Carnegie library, work upon which is expected to begin early in the spring. Frederick W. Keith of the Webb block is the successful ar chitect, and his plans have met with approval from prominent library authorities at the University and else where, as well as the favor of the lo cal commission. Description of Building. Of pure colonial type, appropriately preserving the early traditions in American architecture, the building which will grace the corner of Thayer and Sixth streets will present a com manding front elevation, with high pitched roof, massive chimneys at either end, and entrance and windows carrying out the colonial scheme. The building will be faced with red brick, trimmed with gray Bedford stone. The main floor will be elevated about six feet above the lot level, and will be approached by a broad flight of steps. The basement will be well lighted on all sides, giving the ad vantage of two floors almost equally desirable in all respects. The Interior. The main doors open upon a hall way, with stairs descending to the basement on the right and a cloak room on the left. This in turn gives way into a central delivery rooms, with librarian's desk commanding an unobscured view of a large reading room, 20 by 29 feet, oto the-left, and a children's room of equal size, on the right. The desk is flanked on the left by a reference room, 13 by 18, and on the left by the librarian's of fice, 12 by 13. At the rear are the book stacks, which may be extended at the back without interfering with the remainder of the building. The walls will be finished in plaster, in light tints, and there will be white woodwork, carrying out the colonial idea. The floors will be of hardwood, with cork carpets where necessary. Real Community Center. With a view to making the library a real community center, one-half the basement is devoted to a lecture room, 20 by 43 feet, with an elevated rostrum and seats for 210, from which there opens a kitchenette which may be used in serving refreshments. A large central hall occupies the center of the basement, and to the right of this are a study room, 14 by 15, for the use of students, the library staff's work room, a fuel room and a boiler room, 13.6 by 17. Conforms With Requirements. The plans conform with the require ments of the Carnegie Library bureau and at the same time get away from the stereotyped classical design, which in a building of this size is in clined to give a "squatty" appearance. There are to be two entrances to the lecture room, one on Sixth street in addition to the general entrance, eith er of which may be used without in terference with the library proper. The library building will face north on Thayer street and will be sur rounded by a small grass plot. To Include Everything. Architect Keith's estimates are de signed to deliver the building, com pletely equipped and with all furni ture, at not to exceed the amount ap propriated by the Carnegie Library commission, i. e., $25,000. To Begin Work in Spring. Owing to the lateness of the season and the further fact that local con tractors have so much work that they cannot be induced to even glance at a set of plans, work on the new li brary is not expected to begin until early spring.
