Hayward Library & Community Learning Center

Hayward Library & Community Learning Center

City of Hayward

This new three-story library is located on a prominent site adjacent to the City’s main park in the heart of downtown. Centered around a functional and beautiful atrium that maximizes daylighting and provides ventilation, the 58,000-square-foot library includes meeting rooms, a community learning center with classrooms and computer labs, and a café. The facility will produce more energy than it consumes from photovoltaic solar panels and will harvest rainwater for irrigation and non-potable water uses. 

Target of LEED Gold/Net Zero Energy

Construction Cost: $49.3M (estimated)
