Community

Northeast part of San Antonio and Bexar County. The library serves Stone Oak’s four elementary schools, two middle schools, a high school, a private school, thirty Home Owners Associations, and churches of many denominations. The Downtown Rotary has agreed to build a “Kingdom for Kids” playground in close proximity to the building.

Located in U.S. Congressional District 23, House District 122, TX State Senate District 25, and City Council District 9.

History

Master Plan developer Dan F. Parman donated the land in north central San Antonio, near the intersection of Wilderness Oak and Blanco Road to the Library Foundation in 2008. The land is more than three times the size of land typically provided for a new branch , and has been valued at over $3 million, making it the largest gift from a single donor in the history of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.

Located just south of Panther Springs Park on 10 acres, Parman at Stone Oak is the full-service branch located in Stone Oak. Marmon Mok has designed the Parman Library at Stone Oak to serve San Antonio’s growing population in District 9. Taking cues from local historic structures, Marmon Mok has incorporated ample overhangs, screens, rambling pathways, and stone walls into the library design. Natural light has also sculpted the shape of the building, which features expanses of high-performance glazing interspersed with translucent insulated panels. Solar shading is provided by a dramatic, perforated, screen which tapers dynamically along the entire eastern and southern facades of the library. The facility utilizes a variety of high performance building features, and is expected to earn a LEED-Silver level certification from the USGBC.

Designed as a “next generation” library, it includes welcoming indoor and outdoor meeting and programming spaces, a technologyinfused floor plan, a children’s area, a teen center, and a community meeting room. ADA-compliant pedestrian trails create access to the surrounding natural environment.

The building will be set at the far back end of the property giving those entering the area a feeling of the four ranches the Stone Oak community was created upon. A long driveway will connect from Wilderness Oak to the library’s 100-space parking lot. A wheelchair and bike accessible pedestrian trail will extend from the road to the building.

Architecture & Interior Design: Marmon Mok; Consultants: Jaster-Quintanilla-Structural Engineering; CNG Engineering-MEP Engineering; Vickery & Associates-Civil Engineering; CFZ Group-Landscape Architecture; Swine ton-General Contractor
