Sarasota County Venice Public Library

The Venice Public Library project was a replacement of the existing library building and included the construction of parking, drives, utility infrastructure improvements, landscaping, site lighting, drainage, and storm water management facilities. The new Venice Library was designed as a hybrid model, exemplifying a blend of the latest practices in service delivery with more traditional services that remain relevant to community needs. The library offers lending, reference and youth services, public access computers, wireless internet access, information and educational programs, while serving as a community gathering space. The new library employed strategies to reduce energy costs and provided opportunities for installation of automation equipment for increased efficiency.

A drive-through book and media drop-off area(s), self-check technology, automated materials check-in and sorting technologies, and other technologies to improve the customer experience were considered in the design. Meeting rooms were equipped with the most current computer, projection and video conferencing technology.

This project attained LEED Silver Certification.
