This library is located on the same site and adjacent to the historic Burroughs School and auditorium on Main Street in Conway, SC. With plans to convert the school and auditorium into a museum and theater, the library was sited to frame an entry drive and help organize the site into a “cultural campus” while maintaining several large live oak trees which were original to the school. The two story façade of the library balances the scale and style of the auditorium façade and provides this small library with a strong civic presence visible from Main Street.
