Clarington Central Library

Bowmanville, Ontario

30,000 sq ft

Municipality of Clarington

Site constraints required the design of a multi-storey library to fit the program onto the available land. The library includes Children and Young Adult collections, a café, meeting rooms, a mezzanine overlooking the main floor containing reading areas and quiet study spaces, adult fiction and non-fiction collections, references, a reading area with fireplace, administration and technical services offices and a central computer room for the entire municipal administration and library complex. The building exterior design compliments the original 19th century Town Hall.
