The new Kearns Library serves to regenerate the Kearns community and is the seed that will create lasting change to cultivate the people, place, and platform that is a community library. Through URBAN RE-WILDING of a busy transportation route, the Kearns Library will make STREETS FOR PEOPLE, not just for cars. GROWER/MAKER SPACES that are in, on, and around the new library create the spark for regeneration. The design brings people together in a comfortable fashion, welcomes cultural diversity, provides a sense of choice and opportunity, and mixes the kind of creative yet cozy ambiance that one expects of a library. Interactive spaces within the library offer a new hub of activity drawing public interest and the community back into the public realm.
