Lexington Public Library

Next Project

The innovative redesign of the Marksbury Family Branch positions the library as a dynamic community hub.

This new branch has replaced the Village Branch of the Lexington Public Library and will significantly increase the activities and community engagement opportunities hosted at the facility. The first floor houses a spacious community meeting room suitable for large presentations, job fairs, or fundraisers. There's also a versatile multipurpose room equipped for after-school student learning and homework help, along with a hands-on Makerspace. Upstairs, the library retains traditional elements with stack areas and reading rooms for children, teens, and adults. It also includes smaller, reversable study rooms for group or individual study. The entire library centers on the Marketplace, a large double-height, multi-functional, open space that runs the length of the building. This space can be used to host larger community gatherings, presentations, watch parties, gaming tournaments, art fairs, and numerous other activities. Taking advantage of the steeply sloped site, an external amphitheater provides additional space for community events.
