West St. Petersburg College
at St. Petersburg College
City of St. Petersburg and
St. Petersburg College
By blending the resources of college and community, the West St. Petersburg Community Library at St. Petersburg College has created a place which provides a great range of library material and services in one location.
This 50,000 square foot facility enabled an economic solution to the community and college’s needs.
A library that hosts 120,000 volumes with a capacity of 150,000 far exceeds either library’s individual effort. Ninety public computer stations foster a bridge into research and learning for both student and public patrons.
All patrons enjoy the wide open feel of natural light facilitated by a skylight and large windows which open the entire building to the beautiful landscape, including a great view of Eagle Lake. Finally, the allure of an in house cafe welcomes gourmet coffee lovers and busy college students to a wide open dining space or an extensive outdoor seating area.
