About the Project

Addition of 10,000 SF and renovation of 11,800 SF of existing public library. The addition houses a new prominent reading room adjacent to the entry, new enclosed children’s area, children’s program room, teen area, large meeting room, vending café, restrooms, and lobby with a service counter and new materials display.

The exterior of the building was composed in red brick with burnished block accents and the interior features a rich wood ceiling, beams, and columns. Although the original building does not have many exterior windows, natural light enters the center of the interior space through a long clerestory window.
