Benthack Public Library

Wayne, NE

1997 Completion

$1.4 Million

Completed in 1997, the Robert & Mary Benthack Public Library serves two of its community’s major needs; a Public Library and a Senior Center. The adjacent programs use organization and technology to produce an efficient space for the patrons of the library and the faculty.

The humble exterior pays homage to the surrounding context, while the interior celebrates the exposed structure and clear organization of space. Natural light highlights many of the reading areas offered throughout the building, creating a comfortable and productive environment.
