Lititz Public Library
Design and construction of the Lititz Library was a true collaboration of community effort to create an open, inviting environment inside and out. The building successfully recreates the feel of many existing structures within Lititz, while the entry courtyard invites all visitors through an exterior garden room defined by a low landscape wall and walkthrough trellis.
The main entry promenade walk and adjoining tree canopy allows this space to appear unified while actually functioning as two separate gardens for children and adults.
Many key design elements such as benches, trees, and perennial beds were promoted to the community as ways to support the building project through donations, allowing residents to contribute to the creation of this site.
