Library

nampa, idaho

 

 

Nampa Library has joined the modern library design fray and is the focal point of Nampa Library Square, a redevelopment of an entire city block in downtown Nampa, Idaho. The site was previously occupied by a vacant bank building, a police station, and an under-used public park. The 3-story, 62,000 sf library is the main anchor for the block and services as part community center and part gathering space. This cutting-edge library also has a 3rd floor exterior patio that looks onto the plaza below.

 

In addition to the library is a 300 stall parking structure, a 3-story office building and single-story retail building. Each building fronts the new public plaza with fountains, outdoor dining, grass and other enhancing landscape amenities.
