The public library for the City of Plummer was housed in a small, 2000 SF residence with very limited space and no public restrooms. In 2009, the library patrons passed a bond to construct a new modern library. The new Plummer Library is now a 6000 SF modern library with 2500 SF of stack space, reading room, public computers, children’s area, public restrooms, a public meeting room, a library work room, and basement storage. The simple building form reflects the rural character of the city and is reminiscent of the barns throughout the area. The exterior finishes consist of lap siding, stone veneer wainscot, exposed timber accents, and a mix of asphalt shingle roofing and corrugated metal roofing. The high north facing windows let natural daylight into the reading room and reduce the requirement for artificial light.
