Referred to as the “crown jewel in the network of libraries across the state of Rhode Island” by the State’s Chief of Library Services, the new Tiverton Public Library opened in June 2015. The 24,000 sf building includes a community meeting hall, café, children’s library, teen room and exterior public courtyard spaces. Union Studio designed the building as well as the interiors for the library. The project is located adjacent to town recreational fields and shares an entrance with a newly constructed mixed-use artists’ cooperative. Within close proximity to the middle school and high schools, the library is envisioned as the primary meeting place and neighborhood focal point for this growing community of 17,000 people. The building is designed to the LEED for New Construction equivalent standard. Read more about the design of the new Tiverton Library.
