Parnassus Library Architecture

Opened in September 1990, the Kalmanovitz building was designed by Esherick Homsey Dodge and Davis. The interiors of the 120,000 gross sq. ft. building were designed by SMWM and feature maple, cherry, and spruce wood on five floors. The building is named after Paul and Lydia Kalmanovitz.

The Teaching & Learning Center on the second floor was designed by Harley Ellis Devereaux.
