PROJECT SUMMARY

The new Fuquay-Varina Branch Library will replace the existing Community Library located on 133 South Fuquay Avenue.

The facility opening in 2018 will double the collection size (adult and youth), house more PC's, and offer more youth programs. Other features include WIFI, reference materials, book reservation and self-checkout.
 
The program for library spaces is consistent with the programmatic model previously defined for standard branch libraries; the building program for this branch is approximately 15% larger than the standard community branch at approximately 9,800 square feet. The additional square footage accommodates the future infrastructure required to support this facility when it grows to a regional library of approximately 21,000 square feet. This approach will limit the required demolition and minimize the impact to the library patrons when the facility expands in the future.
