A two storey cylindrical drum develops into a clear storey segment admitting light into the drum. This symbolises the meaning of the library and manifests the spirit of the community. The circular plan, which rises off a square base, shows its lineage in library design to Sydney Smirks reading room in the British Museum and Gunnar Asplud’s Stockholm City Library, but on a much smaller scale.
