Location: Apple Valley, Minnesota
Housed within the Dakota County Service Center, the Galaxie Library achieves its own distinctive look and identity. Its facade is more intricately detailed and it has a lower profile overall. On the inside the library is designed to be especially warm and welcoming - and functional. Warm colors, wood, and abundant day lighting contribute to an inviting interior. A special children's room is circular in shape and features soft carpeted steps that double as seats, and brightly colored windowpanes that create constantly changing patterns of light. The Galaxie Library also includes a flexible meeting room for community events as well as patron use.
