Fort Dodge Public Library - Fort Dodge

Allers Architects in assocation with Durrant Group designed the library building on the west end of the square to provide an anchor to the downtown area located east of the square. In keeping with its important site, the building has formal elements fashioned in a brick facade and an ashlar stone base. The large entrance arches welcome and frame the square. The square provides a front yard for library patrons to enjoy. The public can enjoy cultural events held in the square's band stand.
