Madison County Public Library - Danielsville, GA
This 17,118 square foot community library serves a large area of rural northeast Georgia. It is heavily used as an information and community center by a growing population which includes many young families.

There had been renovations and additions to the building in the past, but the 9600 square foot facility needed to enlarge its floor area and expand its computer offerings to meet public demand. By orchestrating four small additions rather than one large 7,500 square foot addition, Ponder & Ponder, Architects was able to help the library grow exactly where needed, optimizing the construction budget.

The result is a functional, re-organized interior that meets library and community needs. To the community’s delight, from the exterior, the additions blend seamlessly with the existing architecture of the original one story brick building. Improvements:

• Public Meeting Room, available after hours
• New Children’s Library
• New Children’s Homework Center
• Flexible computer lab & quiet study rooms
• Heritage and Genealogy Center
• Young Adult area with lounge seating
• Generous windows for natural day-lighting
• High efficiency 18 SEER HVAC
• New energy saving, light harvesting light fixtures
