Hastings Community Center and Library Architectural Design Announced

St. Johns County Announces Final Architectural Design for Hastings Community Center and Library

St. Johns County is proud to announce the Hastings community selected a design for the new Hastings Community Center and Library. After two weeks of public voting, the Hastings community picked Concept A, inspired by the former Hastings Community Center.

More than 150 residents voted on the four designs revealed at a public meeting on Sept. 12.

“We’re thrilled that the Hastings community came together to pick a design that everyone can be proud to see in their community,” Public Works Director Greg Caldwell said.

The planned community center and library will feature a full-sized library, a separate children’s collection room, an outdoor children’s reading garden, large meeting and assembly rooms, County Health and Human Services offices, a drive-up book drop, and more.

The County is now working on full design and permitting of the building, with construction expected to begin in 2024.
