Exeter Community Library

Located in Reading PA, we provided full services for the construction of an approximate 17,300 SF new community library building. The design concept was inspired by traditional Berks County barn architecture, which can be seen in the stone gable wall and exposed timber trusses at the front entrance. The building is divided into four major wings: the main library, the children’s library, program / community rooms, and the administrative area. Each of these wings revolves around a large central lobby, which also doubles as a community display area. Another design highlight is the wonderful natural light that filters throughout the space provided by the large gable windows in the children’s and main library wings.
