Piqua Library

Piqua, OH

Embracing a Grand History

An inspired restoration of a downtown landmark, the transformation of the historic Fort Piqua Hotel into Piqua, Ohio's, main public library has significantly increased visitation and programs. The hotel was built in 1891 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The three-level library now offers expanded educational, cultural, and technology resources. The building also houses the Piqua Historical Museum, a banquet room, and two retail spaces. Designed in association with MKC Associates and Jeff Wray Associates, the adaptive reuse won multiple awards and was featured in Library Journal.
