The St. Helena Branch Library has been the recipient of more than half a dozen design awards since its opening in fall of 2012. The building’s design is credited to Liollio Architecture (Charleston, SC).

The most recent award comes from the American Institute of Architects’ South Carolina Chapter. Liollio received the 2015 Interior Design Honor Award for the branch library. The branch library was also favored by the American Institute of Architects in 2013 when Liollio was the recipient of the COTE Honor Award as well as the Student’s Choice Award (Charleston Section).

Another recent honor comes on behalf of Library Journal. The branch library was one of 11 winners in Library Journal’s 2015 Landmark Libraries competition. The building was selected “for demonstrating excellence in design and construction, response to community context and constraints, sustainability, functionality, innovation, and beauty.”

In 2014, the library received the Best in Show Award and the Government/Institutional Award from the International Interior Design Association: Carolinas Chapter.
