The Lane Libraries

Oxford Lane Library

The new Oxford Lane Library, completed in September 2015, is part of the planned downtown development of Oxford, OH. Design 27 worked with SHP on this new facility which included a full technology package encompassing audio/visual systems and digital displays throughout the space. Our favorite aspect of this project is the staircase feature using shredded, discarded books protected by a glass wall.


The new Oxford Lane Library includes modern amenities in a unique space designed at developing downtown Oxford. Facility highlights include a large children’s area with interactive exhibits, wireless technology, public access computers throughout the building, and an integrated security system for protecting valuable library assets.
