To unite 7 billion people across the world by promoting the basic human values of compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline to as broad an audience as possible, both through on-site and virtual programming.
The project on Tibet Drive involves construction of a new 9,230 square-foot, two-story building, which will contain the library, exhibit space, a reading room, a “Great Hall” for events of up to 250 people, a meeting room, and office and storage space for library operations.
The building is set into the hillside, allowing for entrances on both the first and second floors, and will have a terra cotta and stucco facade. The project is ADA compliant and will utilize LED lighting.
