Evelyn Cole Smith Architects
Our conceptual design was developed by Evelyn Cole Smith, a local architect who specializes in Historic Preservation. The Library Board of Trustees and Exploratory Building Committee felt it was imperative that the addition fit the existing building and neighborhood seamlessly. Cole Smith proved an excellent choice, with her business tagline of Preserving the Past. Enriching the Future. Read more about her work and design strategies HERE.
The beautiful exterior and interior renderings were done by Kurt McNally of Woodstock. You can see the original watercolors at the library.
