Anoka County Library

Metro Panel sets the bar with the completion of the stunning Anoka County Library renovations. Utilizing wall cladding, standing seam panels, and coping manufactured from zinc, this project is a showcase of how different applications of metal roofing can come together for a magnificent project. Finished in 2019, the renovation doubled the size of the 30-year old library and brought a modern aesthetic to the popular community meeting place. With square footage increasing from 6,300 to over 13,000 the Anoka library will certainly be able to fit in a few more books.

Zinc is traditionally known for its beautiful natural finish complemented by self-healing properties. Additionally, zinc alloys will patina over time, constantly giving the building a unique appearance that is sure to captivate any onlookers. With proper fabrication and installation, zinc alloys can be expected to last for over 100 years. All of this made zinc a wonderful material choice for the library to be a community highlight.
