Parachute Branch Library
Renovation & Addition
The Parachute Branch Library renovation and expansion is one of two projects recently completed for the Garfield County Library District. A 5,000-s.f. expansion combined with extensive renovation of the existing 5,000-s.f. library allowed growth in collections, significant increase to public computing and workspace, a new community room and staff improvements. A “Western crafts” character was used to knit all spaces and exteriors together into a seamless whole. Featured are a highly interactive children’s area, cozy fireplace niche and solar PV roof panels.
