LGA used a very interactive, community-based process to design this 15,600 s.f. facility. Through a three-day public design charrette focusing on understanding both the site and the community’s needs, functional diagrams, landscape concepts, forms, inspiration and broad-brush concepts were entertained and critiqued. Ideas gelled and broad themes were established.

As one of the first public buildings in Laughlin, citizens viewed the facility not only as a library, but as a community center, a cultural arts center, an after-school learning center, and the focal point for gathering and town events—a true Town Square.
