Douglas County is the fastest growing county in Colorado with new families pouring in every day to enjoy the laid back lifestyle, safe streets and top notch shopping and dining experiences. The bond issues haven't been well received but the library through several innovative programs and the generous support of patrons is opening three new libraries including one in the Town of Parker, City of Lone Tree and City of Castle Pines. The Douglas County Libraries named the architect for new libraries, Studiotrope Design Collective with Anderson Mason Dale Architects.

The Douglas County Libraries (DCL) Board of Trustees meeting, the board selected this firm to develop an architectural and design plan for several new libraries. The goal of No Leaf Unturned, the library building campaign announced in 2013, is to respond to the community’s growth and demand for library spaces and services by building three new libraries within the county.

Studiotrope Design Collective and Anderson Mason Dale Architects are known for their innovative design, experience in building public facilities, and respect for community involvement.

“Studiotrope and AMD displayed what DCL is looking for in an architect group and partner,” said library director and project manager Bob Pasicznyuk. “From innovative and creative design work, to their commitment to representing community heritage and involvement throughout this project’s lifespan, we believe they will develop dynamic libraries for our community."
