Prince William County Public Library – Haymarket Gainesville Community Branch

Haymarket, VA

Architect: RRMM-Lukmire Architects

Gainesville, Virginia, a place of beautiful rolling countryside, dotted with barns, horses and farmland. The library wanted to capture this in their Early Learning area. A Barn Sensory Wall with a dramatic silhouetted horse, chickens and a little owl perched in the hay loft was specifically designed for Gainesville. The Barn is a place where sensory and surprise were captured, a very important component in Early Learning development. We added Sunflower mirrors, hinged door style Learning Panels and colorful textured tulips. The Sunflower Learning Corner offers a bright and towering element in the space adding a place to sit and read a book or play with the Learning Panels. The Tractor and Hay Wagon were added PLAY items too. Standard TMCkids Lottie Chairs and Plover Tables with beautifully appointed color adds sophistication and functionality for reading, doing puzzles or games in this enchanting space.
