Located in an area previously without library service, the new branch features highly flexible spaces that support collaborative learning, new education models, digital literacy, and information sharing. The building is oriented on the site to mitigate solar gain in the summer and accentuate long views of the horizon. The site features local xeriscape plantings and visible stormwater management. Clerestory windows draw daylight into the main entry sequence. The project is registered for LEED-NC v3 Silver certification.
