Hastings Public Library

Hastings Public Library

Opened in June of 2007, The Hastings Public Library building is equipped with such features as a rain garden, large super-insulated windows with light shelves, vegetative (green) roofs, and low VOC paints and adhesives. The structure and most furnishings were produced with recycled and sustainable products. Perhaps the building's most cost-effective and easily overlooked efficiency measure would be its super-insulated walls and windows. The Library is currently installing a 7.1 kW photovoltaic solar array to provide pollution-free renewable energy to the facility.
