SHP designed a new two-story branch library as part of a planned town development. The interior delivers a modern, transparent library design. Several local community assets, including canvas murals and a large globe, were integrated into the building’s design.
- A community room highlights the entry tower, providing a very accessible and visible meeting spot for about 50 people, complete with video display monitors and a presentation AV system.
- Housed within the library, the Smith Library of Regional History (3,490 square feet) contains historical archives for Butler Country and the City of Oxford. Specialized humidity controls and a dry fire suppression system protect the valued assets.
- The technology-rich environment offers wireless technology, dispersed public access computers and iPad carts for use anywhere in the library.
