This 60,000 square foot library is a hybrid of exterior masonry walls combined with conventional steel columns, beams, and roof joists. The exterior veneer is primarily brick with precast concrete cap and column accents. The facility features a child-friendly kids corner, a children’s computer lab, an adult computer lab, two public conference rooms, a coffee café, and several lounge areas. Terrazzo floors, barreled ceilings, and indirect lighting make it an ideal atmosphere to enjoy a good book.
