Building a New England library from scratch

Principal Drayton Fair was recently interviewed by US Building Digest contributor Elissa Mintz at the Walpole Public Library. Drayton discusses how this rare new library within our historical New England context incorporates traditional building materials and design principles. He goes on to talk about the relationship between space and staff, the incorporation of group study rooms, and the use of sustainable features and efficient building systems. Watch the interview over on US Building Digest and read up on the library's dedication from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissions. A photo shoot of the library is scheduled for early next week so we'll be showcasing the building very soon! Keep an eye for the photos at Walpole Public Library.
