This library is conveniently located near public transportation.
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.
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.
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.
Instead of using new materials, we refinished these durable shelves so that we could continue to use them.
An easily accessible area is dedicated for recycling.
We use environmentally sound products and practices for cleaning this Library.
