El Dorado Hills Library has won the
Sacramento Business Journal Award for
“Best Public Project” in 2006. The award was
announced at a breakfast at the Sacramento Hyatt
Regency February 9th.
The 16,000 square foot library opened in February
2006. It features an adult reading room with
fireplace, a separate story time room, a young
adult area, an automated circulation system, and a
capacity for 60,000 volumes.
Branch Manager Susan Covington says the library’s
warm interior and compatibility with local
architecture particularly impressed Business
Journal judges. Convington says, “We feel
privileged to have been given the award, but the
accolades should really go to the architectural firm
Murray and Downs, and to El Dorado County Architect
Kathleen Beichley. Their work is breathtaking.”
