The site is on the former County Fairgrounds in the centre of Cookstown. The Library is designed as a series of functions sheltered under a single roof form. A continuous roof monitor floods the interior with controlled daylight. The Library is designed around the proactive customer service model. It features open feasible space and clear sightlines. The library contains dedicated Teen and Children's Areas and a Fireplace Lounge.

Included in the program is a 2,000 sq ft Community Meeting and Recreation space. Both the Library and the Community Rooms open to a Common Lobby using folding partitions. This allows multiple uses of the same space. In association with Saltar Pilon.
