Foothill Ranch Library

The single story county branch library is located on a 2 acre site adjacent to a park and elementary school in the community of Foothill Ranch. The 13,500 square foot structure includes a special children's story time room, a young adult reading area, an internet-computer center, an adult reading "porch", an outdoor patio and a 1,500 square foot community room. The building design is distinguished by the use of smooth troweled plaster, stacked stone and metal roofs reminiscent of the original "out" buildings found on the local Whiting Ranch. A custom designed weathered iron gate depicting a scene from one of the local arroyos graces the building entry.
