BOONE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY
Located in Northern Kentucky, the new Hebron Branch Library will serve a rapidly growing population in this portion of Boone County. The new branch will reflect characteristics of the county through the use of stone (reminiscent of the layered limestone substrate prevalent in the area) along with a slatted façade facing the main North Bend Road, suggesting a barrel motif related to the proximity of the historic Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
The building is situated on the site to take advantage of a raised hill overlooking a nearby main intersection, providing views to and from the library along North Bend. The large glass wall of the main reading/collection area faces north and west, providing views of the original forested areas of the site.
The library will also include a series of large and small Meeting and Study Rooms, a retired adult area, large Children’s and Teen Area’s with a dedicated program room, a drive up book drop and service window, and parking for 125 vehicles. The library will feature an outdoor amphitheater, including a covered stage area, for public viewing of larger performances and access to public restrooms inside the library.
