Hampton Park Library: Cumming, GA

A construction project ten years in the making, the new Hampton Park Library is the jewel of the Forsyth County Library System, one of the finest in the country. Built on a four-acre site, the new 22,858 square foot Hampton Park Library offers a variety of features that increase exemplary meeting and educational opportunities for North Forsyth, one of the fastest developing areas in the state of Georgia. The unique design takes advantage of the spacious site and maximizes the aesthetic appeal of this new facility. Built with the preservation of the environment in mind, the library includes innovative sustainable features such as a gray water irrigation system and wide roof overhangs that shade windows from heat and ultraviolet rays.  Low-maintenance, native water plants comprise the landscape and filter runoff from the parking lot. Once inside, library patrons can peruse the 60,000 item collection in a comfortable environment designed to resemble a  mountain lodge, with exposed beams and warm, autumn colors. The library includes a 100-seat meeting room, self-checkout stations, children’s area, nonfiction, fiction, reference, a magazine room and 38 public access computers.
