Two years after being built, the St. Helena Branch Library was again recognized for its architecture and design.

The St. Helena Branch Library was featured as a 2014 Building of the Week in the American-Architects online newsletter. American-Architects took a state-by-state look for the feature and chose the St. Helena Branch Library as the building to highlight in South Carolina.

American-Architects described the design of incorporating attributes of the Gullah-Geechee Sea Island culture and its modern look and feel as the reasoning for the library being chosen as a winner. To read the article, go to
