Architecture & Design
The architectural style of the building is strongly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Prairie School” design. The interior decor is intentionally warm, with a significant amount of wood trim and a fireplace. There are 233 windows in the building to provide natural light and a visual link to the surrounding environment.
Goals It is our goal to provide a community center that offers a welcoming space to individuals and groups for library services and resources, cultural activities, civic and community events, and more.
Providing Real Education
"I received the fundamentals of my education in school, but that was not enough. My real education, the superstructure, the details, the true architecture, I got out of the public library. For an impoverished child whose family could not afford to buy books, the library was the open door to wonder and achievement, and I can never be sufficiently grateful that I had the wit to charge through that door and make the most of it." - Isaac Asimov
