The new 15,500-SF Kilton Library establishes new standards of performance for the West Lebanon community. No fossil fuels are used for heating or cooling and daylighting is maximized throughout. Ground source heat pumps with twelve wells are used for general heating and cooling with a biomass boiler for additional winter heat.
The new library has an expansive Children’s Library and associated Teen Library, adult reading alcoves and study rooms, and a large Community Meeting Room with sliding walls opens onto the Gallery. These wrap around three sides of the Adult Reading Garden, and are flanked by the Children’s Story Court.
