Chapel Hill Public Library

Town of Chapel Hill | Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Set in the middle of a forested park, the Chapel Hill Public Library takes advantage of the views and the natural surroundings to provide a special place to study, read and engage.

The Chapel Hill Public Library is the most heavily used public libraries per capita in the State of North Carolina. In 2006, the Chapel Hill Town Council determined that a major expansion was needed to meet the increasing demand for library services. CRA, in conjunction with Robert AM Stern Architects, designed a series of modern additions to the existing facility to expand the reading areas, the children’s library and community spaces. The interior is highlighted by a large, light-filled reading room that faces the existing forest to the south. Just off the main entry plaza, is a conference center which will be used by clubs, municipal commissions and committees. The facility is certified to a silver level through the LEED rating system.
