The Library Park Project
With great excitement we announce a unique opportunity to transform half a city block next to the library into an outdoor reading, learning, and gathering space for the community!
Updating and re-imagining a plan initially conceived ten years ago, the KPL Foundation is working with Massie+Massie Architects to develop a unique Library Park which will include:
a reading and sculpture garden
a plaza area with seating and mobile device charging stations
a small performance and outdoor classroom space with permanent seating
gardens with native Iowa plants
environmental best practices
The Library Park will be constructed using environmental best practices, including water run-off designs and solar power. Special gardens will highlight native Iowa plants and flowers, and local species of trees will be planted and cultivated.
We invite you to become partners in our Library Park Campaign, which is fully endorsed by the library's trustees. Help us make this exciting addition to the Keokuk Public Library a reality.
