The Sequoya Library occupies 20,000 sf of first floor space at Sequoya Commons, a mixed-use residential, retail and public library development. The library is designed to provide a full range of library services and offer a sustainable learning laboratory for the community. The new library layout is much different from a traditional library design. More seating area “neighborhoods” and a computer café complement the new library’s substantial print and media formats, electronic resources and increased group activity venues. The collections at the Sequoya Branch Library are in a large open space divided by furniture and shelving. This allows the space to be configured in many different ways as library services evolve. Every public space is surrounded by large glass windows allowing in daylight and views out to the neighborhood. The library is LEED®-Silver.
