Taming the temperature
We use roofing and exterior paving materials that reduce the heat island effect (thermal gradient differences between developed and natural areas). This minimizes our impact on the microclimate and on wildlife habitat.
Let the sun shine in
Windows provide natural light and reduce the use of electricity.
Bicycle parking encourages library visitors to use environmentally friendly and health conscious modes of transportation.
Zero chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-based refrigerants are used in the building's heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems.
We're in control
The lighting, temperature and ventilation systems can all be controlled within the branch.
Made from natural ingredients including flax seeds, sawdust and pine resin, this linoleum comes primarily from renewable resources and is biodegradable.
These beautiful wooden shelves are original to this building
Instead of using new materials, we refinished these durable shelves so that we could continue to use them.
Room for recycling
An easily accessible area is dedicated for recycling.
Clean and green
We use environmentally sound products and practices for cleaning this Library.
