Library planned for modern media enthusiasts

January 21, 2011 |
England Run Library

The England Run Library, a new 30,000-sf glass, brick, and stone building, will soon house more than 100,000 books and DVDs. The Lukmire Partnership, Arlington, Va., designed the Stafford County, Va., library, the firm’s fourth for the Central Rappahannock Library System, to combine modern library-browsing trends with traditional library services. Comfortable seating areas, plus a fireplace in the periodicals area, create a relaxing atmosphere. A children’s “beehive” program room, a café, and a bookstore-style media center and popular reading area round out the library’s amenities.
