This public library is located on a historical property containing a Century Home as well as a large pond and ancient trees.

This development provides state of the art library services while demonstrating lessons in natural and community history.

The new facility brings all the amenities associated with a modern library to this rural locale while maintaining the historical significance of the property.

The design incorporates the existing historical homestead by enveloping it within the new construction, positioned in such a way as to feature the existing home within the street views.

The use of mobile shelving serves to provide a space which can be arranged for larger functions either library-related or library adjacent.
