A panel of judges selected Romeoville's renovated library as the Silver Award winner in its annual competition, according to White Oak Director Scott E. Pointon. He said the library will be recognized at the Association's awards ceremony and also will be featured in Licensed Architect magazine (photos and information about the completed project).
Brian Meade, who works for Dewberry architects, an Elgin-based firm, served as the lead architect on the Romeoville redesign and submitted information and photos about the project for consideration to the judges, Pointon said.
Dewberry has designed all three White Oak library branches—Romeoville, Crest Hill and Lockport. The Romeoville branch is located at 201 W. Normantown Road.
