The newly renovated Durham County Main Library opened its doors to the public on July 20th. The building was scheduled to open in April of 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it was delayed.
At 37 years old, this much needed transformation was the final step of the regional library plan implemented by the County. The library footprint was reconfigured for ease of use and enhanced visibility throughout the building. A prominent outdoor public plaza was also incorporated for programs and events. A technology center supports several activities including business training, cultural education, and teaching/networking. An expanded North Carolina Collection is also included. Falcon was selected to provide materials testing and special inspections during construction.
