Lincoln Heritage Public Library Chrisney Branch: Chrisney, IN

Community Connection
Chrisney P03
Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects

The small town of Chrisney, Ind., turned to net zero to overcome financial hurdles and realize the residents’ dream of building a library. The town lost its high school in the 1970s and then its highway due to an expansion and rerouting, and hoped a library would stem the tide of decline. For five years, the small, simple library has served as a source of pride for this shrinking town, providing a resource for information and a community gathering place while producing more electricity than it consumes.
