Roeliff Jansen Community Library
Hillsdale, NY

“We’ve had over 100 people visit the library so far, and the comments were uniformly great. It’s a nice building outside and a remarkably wonderful space inside.”

Meg Wormley
Co-chair, Capital Campaign Committee

“Ken Best has been remarkably flexible, giving us a very sophisticated plan at a reasonable cost.”

Steve Tiger
Building Committee Chair


Although the initial program called for 12,000 SF, the desired picturesque site restricted the footprint to 7,500 SF. The new building is designed to achieve LEED Gold and takes advantage of a southern solar orientation for daylighting and photovoltaics.
