The new facility includes expanded areas for book stacks, reading, special collections and staff support. New services supported by dedicated space include a children’s work room, a teen center, public computers, and a large community meeting space.  The new Library design focuses on improving indoor environment quality by utilizing low VOC materials and installing high performance air supply systems, reducing water usage through the installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures and a water-efficient landscape, and the use of recycled and regional building materials.
