Capitola Branch Library

Weaving the surrounding beauty into a natural design

Reminiscent of the hull of a boat, the design of the new Capitola Library Branch library envisions a flexible, modern library unique to Capitola. Given the City’s natural setting and beauty, the design incorporates quiet, outdoor reading spaces and a pedestrian connection to the nearby creek. With a serene, light-filled reading room and a vibrant children’s area. The building responds to the results of a robust community process that arrived at a building design that is right for Capitola now and into the future.
