    Hello all,
    We are in the midst of planning for a brand new library for our campus and I am looking for examples of libraries that have been constructed in the last 5 years that have incorporated highly sustainable practices such as designing for decarbonization.  Thanks in advance for any insight you might be able to share.

    As we embark on this adventure I anticipate I'll have many questions along the way.

    Hi Mindy,

    You should take a close look at the Tutt Library at Colorado College. While this is not a new build it is a highly successful reno resulting in a Zero Waste building. It's a fantastic renovation and may offer you some great ideas.

    Congratulations on your opportunity!
