The Potomac Community Library was designed in 1974 with the building oriented around an open area of lawn with a small concrete patio. This project developed the area behind the library was infrequently used. The goal is to increase the use of the library as a “community center” and become a destination point for residents in keeping with the renaissance of the local community.
The Plaza is an elegant setting designed as an extension of the library and serves as an outdoor room. This area provides an environment that invites both active and passive use. The Plaza supports events and planned activities as well as act as an attractive, compelling, and engaging area for individuals of all ages. Not only does it provide a stage for community interaction, it offers introspective spaces for individual uses and a destination for families and individuals of all ages.
