About the Palmetto Branch

The Palmetto Library is imagined as a series of ‘rooms’ or small buildings nestled within a semi-rural landscape. Drawing on vernacular structures from the region, it features large rooms, corresponding to the major functions of the Library. A nearby barn provided inspiration for the overall form of the building, which responds to specific views, solar characteristics, and functional requirements of each defined room. Materials used for the exterior of the library draw upon the legacy of building in the entire Palmetto/Chattahoochee Hills region, while reinforcing the civic character of the structure. The structure will age well and give a rich patina to the building as time passes.

Meeting Room
The meeting room seats 54 and can be reserved by community groups. There is a built-in screen (cable ready for TV), laptop, and projector are part of meeting room equipment. The branch has a small area for refreshment preparation with stackable chairs and tables.

Public Art Project
Project Title: On a Roll by Andrew T. Crawford.
This sculpture is inspired by the architect’s use of rural imagery and stems from the artist’s love of common and familiar objects.
