SALT SPRING ISLAND LIBRARY

 

Salt Spring Island Library was designed to make the most of a compact site in the downtown Ganges of Salt Spring Island. The two storey library offers space for public reading, group collaboration, meeting rooms, archives, staff offices and a large program room for events.

 

The project attained a LEED Gold environmental standard due to its extensive use of wood, natural daylighting and ventilation systems.
