New Vandalia Branch Library Will Remain on High School Campus

Patrons of the Vandalia Branch Library won’t have to travel far to enjoy the amenities of a 21st century Library in a few years. Plans are moving forward to construct a larger, updated Library between the current Building and the Board of Education building. The concept under consideration is that the Board of Education would move into the current Library building and its facility would be torn down to create green space for the new Library after it is constructed.

The building is being designed by Ruetschle Architects, a member of the Dayton Design Collaborative, working in conjunction with Group 4 Architects who bring nationwide library design experience to the project. Shook Construction is providing construction management services.

What is the timing for my library?

Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of October 2016, with a grand opening in mid-November. The project is part of the Libraries for a Smarter Future system-wide facilities upgrade, made possible by strong voter support of a bond issue in 2012.

What features are being planned for my new library?

The new expanded Library floor plan will create distinct spaces for adults, teens, and children. It will include the addition of group study rooms, a large meeting room, and a flexible program space for Library programs and use by community partners. Also, the architects are exploring options for improved access and egress, including the possibility of a lane connecting the Library and school campus with Scott Avenue.
