Library releases details on building project

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – After much anticipation, the Clark County Public Library is excited to announce the groundbreaking of their new Northridge Branch on June 13, 2024 at 5 p.m. at its future site located at 4925 Middle Urbana Road in Springfield.

The groundbreaking event will feature the Clark County Public Library Board of Trustees, Library Director, Bill Martino, and the rest of the library team sporting hard hats and shovels in hand to kick off construction for the future Northridge Branch. Also in attendance will be team members from Luminaut, the architecture and design firm leading the project, as well as Pepper Construction.

Guided by extensive staff and community surveys and engagement sessions conducted by Luminaut, the new 9,347-square-foot library will have dedicated adult, teen, and children’s areas and materials, as well as multiple meeting rooms and study areas open to the public. It will also feature an outdoor multi-use programming and reading patio that backs up to Moorefield Family Park. To ensure connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood and serve as an environmentally conscious community resource, the building will be set back off the road and maximize the single floor footprint to respect the suburban context. Its overall orientation will also create optimal solar usage to flood the interior with indirect natural light.

“We are thrilled and honored to be working alongside the Clark County Public Library in executing their vision for the new Northridge Branch,” said Erin Jennings, Luminaut’s public library market leader. “This new library branch will bring new public service amenities that are not currently offered in this area. With context and community at the heart of every design decision, the Luminaut team worked closely with CCPL in creating a captivating, inspiring, and timeless library design for all ages to experience. This library project is a living example of how literacy development will elevate neighborhood impact for generations to come.”

The Northridge Branch, as well as the Tuttle Branch currently under renovation, are being added to the library system in order to serve Springfield’s growing population due to new housing developments in the community. It will serve an estimated 7,500 patrons in Northridge and 11,000 patrons in Moorefield Township. The branch is expected to open to the public in summer 2025.

TUTTLE BRANCH

Library Expanding to Tuttle Road

The Clark County Public Library will be branching out to a new library location at 191-193 South Tuttle Road in Springfield! The Tuttle Branch will be located in the shopping plaza that is directly across from the Tuttle Road Walmart (and behind the plaza that currently houses Hot Head Burrito).

This area of Clark County is seeing tremendous growth with the addition of new housing and more to come. The new location will be roughly 5,000 square feet and feature a small meeting room, study rooms, patron computers and of course books and materials for check-out. Luminaut has been selected as the architect for the renovation project and work will be done by Kapp Construction.

The new branch on the east side of Springfield is estimated to be open to the public in fall of 2024.
