El Dorado Hills Library hailed as “Best Public Project” 2006

The 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.”
