You should look at the Poetry Foundation building in Chicago by John Ronan Architect opened in June 2011.

This building is larger than the library in Lawrenceville but has many parallels with its courtyard, library and poetry reading room.  The sophisticated and subtle scheme rewards some study. You will find newspaper reports from Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal and video of the architect describing the design process.
