Porter Memorial Library: Covington, GA

Located on Highway 212 in Covington, the new 19,200 SF Porter Memorial Library features an abundance of natural light, an open layout, separate children, teen, and adult reading and computer areas, a 60-seat meeting room, 6 private study rooms, a quiet room, and a public service desk with self-checkout.

Behind the scenes is a large open general work room to promote collaboration. For the operations of the library, Hogan also built storage rooms, a conference room, offices, a breakroom, and more.

Sustainable features to achieve LEED Gold certification include a 20,000 gallon tank and rainwater collection system for irrigation and non-potable water in library restrooms. The design also features expansive windows for abundant natural lighting, automatic light sensors and timers, sun shades, light shelves and locally-manufactured materials.
