Elmore Public Library

Elmore Public Library

Elmore, MN

The conversion and renovation of an existing building in downtown Elmore into a new library required the complete clearing of the interior and some exterior upgrades. The renewed interior layout features an expanded circulation area, more seating options, new bathrooms, and a community meeting room, as well as all new flooring, wall and ceiling finishes, and some new furniture.

The community meeting room, kitchen area and restrooms are situated so they can be accessed for special meetings and events when the Library is closed. Pops of color in the carpet tiles and chairs brighten the children’s area and lounge. A soffit and pendant lighting highlight the service and check-out desk which is framed on two sides with computer work stations. Exterior renovations included the replacement of all windows and doors, the addition of new clerestory windows, brick tuck pointing and a new entry canopy over the main Willis Street entry.

The library renovation was funded in part through the USDA Rural Development Initiative and Recovery Act program, and locally from generous private and Friends of Elmore Library donations and assistance from the City of Elmore.
