East Dubuque Public Library

City of East Dubuque

Wold assisted East Dubuque in designing a new library that would effectively double the size of the existing facility. The new library was to be situated near a junior high school to encourage after-school use and increase community opportunities. Scenic views and natural daylight were incorporated into the design, allowing a visual connection of interior and exterior spaces while allowing flexibility and a sense of community connectedness. Additional unique features include:

  • Children’s section located in a highly visible area to encourage use and improve supervision
  • Soft seating area with a fireplace
  • Designed to minimize operating costs

*Developed in collaboration with Straka Johnson Architects, Dubuque, IA
