Paddison Branch Memorial Library
Project Owner: Forsyth County
Designer: Steven Lloyd Architecture
Situated on approximately three acres on Harmon Lane, the library is an integral part of the Kernersville community and provides a new learning environment and gathering space. The 20,000-square-foot building includes multiple public meeting rooms, a “maker lab” for creative learning, teen space, and children’s area. the new Paddison branch is about far more than shelves of books. Modern libraries are now hubs of multimedia and technology as well as major gathering places for the community. The library is designed to serve the residents and the Town of Kernersville, particularly with the conference room areas that can be used for meetings and special events. This area will has a separate entrance so
that it can be closed off from the main library and used to host events outside of the library’s regular operating hours.
