What would the new public facility include?

The new purpose-built Public Library and Cape Fear Museum building would be 95,000 gross square feet, inclusive of the building footprint, loading dock and bay, and large outdoor terrace. It would be a modern space that brings the library and museum together to enhance the visitor's experience. 

The library space will include spaces for adults, children, teens, and local history; and the museum space will include an immersive theater, interactive and engaging galleries, and space for a changing gallery. In addition, shared space in the building will include multi-purpose rooms and an outdoor terrace.
