Ramsey County Shoreview Library / HGA

Shoreview is a suburban community of 25,000 residents located 12 miles north of St. Paul, Minnesota. The new library, operated by Ramsey County Libraries, replaced a functionally obsolete community library with the Shoreview Library as a new regional library serving Shoreview and the north metro suburbs. Ramsey County Libraries sought a highly visible site for the new Shoreview Library. Since the Shoreview Library mission was transforming from a local community library into a larger regional library, a visual prominence announcing the new services offered was important.
