James Weldon Johnson Branch Library
City of St. Petersburg
A prototype Branch Library design was developed for two different residential areas in the City of St. Petersburg. Intended to blend with the neighboring residential architecture, the design features residential elements without losing its community scale.
The square foot Johnson Branch Library replaces a 4,000 sf space in a community center. The new library houses 35,000 volumes and features wireless technology and special rooms for children, teenagers, quiet adult reading and a meeting room for the community.
