Designed by Machado Silvetti, the 20,000 sf building features slate shingles and blocks, woods, and natural-finished wood windows. The spacious, sunny branch has an open layout, a large function room for community events, an art gallery that showcases exhibits by local artists, and outdoor reading courtyards for children and adults, full of trees and seating. In 2006, sculptor Rich Duca contributed tree guards and bicycle racks to the property, adding both beauty and function to the exterior.
