Silver Winner Spring Garden Road Memorial Public Library

Bronze Winner Alderney Gate Public Library


Keshen Goodman has become the heart of Clayton Park, putting the “there” there, bringing sophistication to the ’burbs. The sleek design of the building, coupled with a user-friendly layout, has won big approval, so successful that it is the template for the new Central Library under construction downtown. We like how the community meeting room isn’t stuck off some hard-to-find hallway on an upper floor, but rather front and centre, right inside the front doors. “This place is about community” is the statement. Our readers say they like the wide selection of books and programs.
