Jones Creek Regional Library
POST ARCHITECTS was selected by the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System to design a new library for the expanding local community. From the exterior, massing and materials were carefully chosen to be compatible with the residential surroundings. Inside, the arched and skylit Adult Area is a linear great hall with abundant light. More intimate seating areas are located within the stacks and are pronounced on the exterior by projections from the main structure. The Children's Area is readily apparent from the exterior by its rounded perimeter and "circus tent" volume which encourages the children to feel at home in their special place. Adjacent story rooms provide opportunity for special activities.
