Through the Cultural Arts Master Plan, a needs analysis determined that there is a high level of demand for quality cultural programming a well as adequate numbers of qualified partners to support this need. The City of Pompano Beach and the Pompano Beach CRA developed a triumvirate of new art spaces, the Pompano Beach Cultural Center and Library; The Pompano Beach Amphitheater; Bailey Contemporary Arts; and the Ali Building.
Pompano Beach Library
A new 27,000-square-foot library with 130 dedicated parking spaces designed and constructed by the City of Pompano Beach, replacing the older Pompano Beach Branch Library. The library facility is be located on land owned by the City of Pompano Beach. The County occupies the library via a 50-year lease (with a 50-year option to renew) with the City, whereby the City is the landlord and the County is the tenant. The design for this library understands the new ways in which libraries operate in an information age and in response provides access to technology as a means of disseminating knowledge is at the heart of the project’s design. Throughout each space, state-of-the-art instructional technology is incorporated in innovative ways.
The design of the library features a well-equipped Electronic Media Lab where patrons have access to computers and electrical outlets and Wi-Fi available throughout the stacks. The library also provides patrons with iPads for public use designed with stations distributed throughout the library. Another unique feature is the Teen Tech Studio, designed so that young adults can explore digital media and creativity, individually and collaboratively. This myriad of technology offerings is intended to cut across age groups and increase access to knowledge for different users.
