The brick exterior of the Eastwood Branch enhances its residential image and gives this library a feeling of permanence. The same brick is carried into the building, creating the walls of the entry lobby and forming an entry portal to the library spaces beyond.
As a focal point within the interior of the building, the ceiling planes above the circulation desk create a pyramidal void culminating in a skylight that crowns the building's roof line with a prismatic-shaped cupola. The circulation desk is defined by four free-standing polychrome columns that suggest an Egyptian influence. Opposite the circulation desk is the children's collection, with an adjacent story room to the west featuring original watercolor illustrations for children.
