The new Lake County library is one story with a second floor mezzanine totaling over 10,000-square-feet.
The design melds a traditional look with modern technology and incorporates elements of geology, landscape, history and lifestyle of Lake County. Located 5,000-feet in elevation in one of Oregon’s severe weather areas, high water table issues required driven pilings. This building is comprised of structural concrete, a wood framed structure and masonry veneer doors. With a commitment to sustainability, the new library is an energy efficient building with features such as geothermal energy for heating. Many in-kind donations of materials and services were given toward this project.
