The existing library facility was outdated and under-utilized. In an effort to draw more users to the library and modernize the appearance and usability of the facility, the Board opted to double the size of the facility.

This project created a new community facility and and provided up-to-date technological and media facilities. Included in the expansion were an interior state-of-the-art theater, an exterior amphitheater, a gift shop and community meeting rooms, as well as, a new parking structure.

This particular building site, a downtown corner lot, presented space constraints that warranted special considerations and procedures during construction.
