Victor Vines

Thanks to those who support Library programs and services by volunteering thousands of hours every year and to all dues paying Friends members. 

Thank you Friends of NHCPL!

Annual Meeting attendees fully engaged with the Vines Architects team sharing ideas for the new Pine Valley Branch.

  • Located in downtown Raleigh, Vines Architecture is a design firm with a primary focus on public sector work related to libraries, cultural, higher education, and visitor based projects.
  • The Vines team has a passion for developing projects that engage and serve the community. Members of Vines Architecture have been significantly involved in the design of seven public library projects. They understand the continually changing trends in libraries and that they have become places for engagement, dialogue, knowledge and creating--not just a place to check out books.
  • Vines architecture is currently designing the renovation and addition of the Main Library for Durham County Library.
