Libraries remain the hub of a community. Here, the design relied on pre-engineered wood stud trusses supported by interior steel columns, beams and exterior metal stud bearing walls. A high roof supported by an interior steel frame lets natural light into the main space. Flexible meeting spaces were added to meet the community’s needs.
