The new 725m2 library will provide a variety of appropriately scaled spaces to suit the myriad of uses for a modern building. These include community meeting spaces, smaller meeting rooms, intimate study nooks, window seats, a children’s collection area, access to local council information and services, study spaces and desks, and staff facilities. The new building is proposed to incorporate sustainable design features including utilising regionally sourced timber for parts of the primary building structure and internal finishes, natural ventilation for the main library spaces, and filtering of on-site storm-water through native planting beds. The orientation of portions of the glazed façade provides high levels of natural light, energy efficient LED lighting will be utilised in main library spaces, and a western facing solar/sun screen will provide shade to the library living room space. Heated water radiators will be used for heating during colder months. Steel Pencil will undertake the structural steel shop drawings, coordinating the steel with the timber framing.
