PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Praxis3 maintained a relationship with the Rural Library Project, a public service organization dedicated to helping small, underserved, often poor, rural communities to plan, build, fund and maintain community libraries. This new library planned for the small, majority-minority, South Georgia community of Lumpkin was intended to function as a small lending facility and also serve as a community center, training center and job search center for the entire county. The library would provide internet access to those who cannot access it at home as well. The building’s contemporary form would recall the town’s recent industrial and farming past and provide a new focal point for the entire region.
