Hayward Library & Community Learning Center

A highly sustainable building in the heart of downtown

Located on an urban site adjacent to the City’s main downtown park, this three-story library is an innovative resource for Hayward’s diverse community. The library includes expanded classrooms and educational spaces for an adult learning center and a homework center. It is one of the largest Zero Net Energy public libraries in the country and includes a rainwater catchment system that will save and recycle 500,000 gallons of water per year. In terms of design, sustainability, and service delivery, this is truly a 21st Century Library.

TARGET: LEED PLATINUM CERTIFICATION/ZERO NET ENERGY

“When we set out to design a groundbreaking new library for Hayward, our goal was to create a dynamic new facility that would be the right size, the right scope, and the right cost for Hayward. Good stewardship of public resources was always foremost in our minds.”
