Hennepin County Commissioner Linda Higgins, Hennepin County staff and LSE Architects met with community members on September 9, 2015 to discuss the new Webber Park Library project. Designs for the library’s outdoor spaces including the shape of the outdoor reading area, planting materials and outdoor furniture were discussed. The focus will be on native plants that attract pollinators. Samples of granite and zinc that will be used on the library’s exterior were displayed.
The architects provided an updated interior image of the library to show how color, lighting and furnishings designs are developing. The image included an example of a sound-absorption wall panel shown above the children’s area. Acoustical ceiling panels and insulated windows that reduce sound transmission from outside of the library are also included in the plan.
