Omni selected for new Boone County Public Library
The Board of Directors of the Boone County Public Library has hired Omni Architects to design its new southern branch, to be located in Walton, Kentucky.
The new library will be located on a 6.5-acre parcel on Towne Center Drive in Walton and will be approximately 20-25,000 square feet. The design design process kicked off in January 2022 and included a number of design workshops with library staff and members of the public in attendance. Participants viewed images and design styles that helped develop a vision for a new building that will best meet the community’s needs and develop ideas for how the site, building form, and interior layout could be organized.Carrie Herrmann, Library Director, recognized the growing population in the southern portion of Boone County. “Land was purchased in 2010 in anticipation of the demand for library services. The Library is excited to move forward on this project. We believe that Omni Architects is a partner that will design a 21st century library for our community, and we look forward to working with them.”
