Design Approach: The library's design was to develop a feel and identity of keeping with the clean, friendly, community style of living associated with Henderson. The desire was for the library to have a human scale, be warm and personal, not grandiose. The result is a small, low scale building designed in a vocabulary reminiscent of the history of Henderson as well as being appropriate for its desert environment.

Material in ASL Library: Entry form/board, project description, site plan, floor plan, photos and cd
