The facility will have space for a café, large multipurpose room, numerous meeting rooms, and a designated creative space. A unique feature of this project is the local history area. The functional design features an open concept, allowing for flexible use of the space.

In addition, the library will reach beyond the building with several inviting outdoor spaces including a park, an amphitheater, and an outdoor terrace.
