The Town of Truckee is in need of a new library to service the greater Truckee/Tahoe region and complement the existing literary services. Through intensive community outreach and stakeholder programming sessions, LDA has designed a new 21,000sf library for the community.
The new library will house a 2,000sf community room with a kitchen, staff workspace and storage, restrooms, a bookstore, a children’s collection with a Storytime area, a community living room, a teen collection, collaborative learning spaces, and meeting rooms, adult collections and historic resources and outdoor learning and reading areas. The design will be a new contemporary-alpine architecture with modern services for visitors and staff alike bringing the local library system into the 21st century. In addition to the new classroom building a full campus modernization of the 15 permanent classrooms are proposed to provide a 21st-century learning environment.
