Design for new library building moving forward

Spring Hill Public Library

The Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Alderman on June 30, 2017, approved this year’s City budget, which includes funding for the design of a new, state-of-the-art public library facility.

This decision comes after a great deal of work by the Spring Hill Library Board of Trustees (LBOT) and the Friends of the Spring Hill Public Library who jointly championed the need for the facility.

It remains to be determined if the new library will be a newly constructed building or an addition to the existing building. Under either scenario, the location of the Spring Hill Public Library will remain on Kedron Parkway.

Fifteen architectural firms from multiple states expressed interest in developing the design and overseeing construction of Spring Hill’s new library facility. These firms were evaluated by the LBOT with in-person presentations by the three finalist firms. LBOT Vice Chair Brandon McCulloch noted that the review of firms was an extensive vetting process with a great deal of discussion on each firm’s history in the development and construction of public library facilities. Former City Librarian Gail Adkins, now a member of the LBOT, further noted that with the heavy use of electronic media of all types within public libraries, it presents unique design challenges.

Among the three finalists, HBM Architects of Cleveland, Ohio, was selected to design and oversee the construction of the new Spring Hill Public Library.
