Located on a seven-acre site with a lake nearby, the library was built to accommodate rapid growth in the city of Maple Grove. Designed with the future in mind, the library features flexible spaces, an open floor plan and a raised floor that will accommodate future expansions. A three-level parking garage accommodates 356 vehicles. The new library features several sustainable elements, including a green roof to reduce energy costs, geothermal heating and cooling, high clerestory windows that maximize daylight, low-maintenance landscaping with native plants, and local building materials.
