Functional Architecture

 non_profit_organization_Dakrong_libraryThe Library of Vietnam builds libraries, and includes stock of books, computers and internet in the basic project. Each cost $35,000 and is only possible through donations from charitable people like you. The local People's committees and officials provide the land and site preparation to included unexploded bomb and mine clearance where necessary. From the day of dedication forward, the security, operation, and maintenance are paid for by the Vietnamese people. The standard design is key to our concept. It features a distinctive roof line, handicapped access ramps, outdoor balcony with an open study. The   meeting and assembly area on the first floor.
  Books and computers are on the second floor to avoid potential flooding in the monsoon season.
Distinctive Design

  The distinctive look is unique and provides an architectural signature   to our libraries. When you encounter a library anywhere in Vietnam   or in Laos, you know you are in the cooperative, friendly presence of   the American Library of Laos or of Vietnam. This recognition is   essential to our larger vision of reconciliation, cooperation, and   peace!
