The public library for the city of Plummer, Idaho was housed in a small, 2,000 square foot residence with very limited space and no public restrooms. In 2009, the library’s patrons passed a bond to construct a new, modern library. The new library consists of a 6,000 square foot space with a dedicated 2,500 square feet to stack space, a reading room, public computers, a children’s area, a public meeting room, a library work room, public restrooms, and basement storage. The design of the building was meant to reflect the rural character of the city, and is reminiscent of the barns located throughout the area. The exterior finishes to accomplish this look consist of lap siding, stone veneer wainscot, exposed timber accents, a mix of asphalt shingle roofing, and corrugated metal roofing. The high North facing windows let natural daylight into the reading room, reducing the requirement for artificial lights while adding an extra level of comfort to the space.
