This new library was designed for world class energy savings, minimal environment impact, and conservation of resources. Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) is a set of sustainable principles that can be used to ensure new buildings are designed and constructed with relevant environmental considerations. This new library is in the process of being evaluated for the LEED Platinum level which is the highest certification awarded by the LEED organization.

Smart Building Kiosk Example Picture

Kiosk

The Herriman library energy production, its energy consumption, the weather at the library and many other parameters can be viewed at the online smart building kiosk. Many of the design features that make this library a model for energy & environmental design can be viewed in the "green features" section of the kiosk. Check it out.

There are numerous reasons to build a "green building." Environmental benefits include the enhancement and protection of ecosystems and biodiversity, the protection of air and water quality, the reduction of solid waste and the conservation of natural resources. Health and community benefits include improving air, thermal and acoustic environments, enhancing occupant comfort and health, minimizing strain on local infrastructure and contributing to overall quality of life. There are also significant economic benefits like reducing operating costs, enhancing building and land values, improving productivity and learning, and optimizing life-cycle economic performance.

Blue Sky

Salt Lake County Library is proud to partner with Rocky Mountain Power for the Blue Sky renewable energy program which generates electricity with little or no emissions. It effectively uses resources that replenish themselves naturally, like wind, solar and biomass. The use of renewable energy at Herriman and Magna Libraries  during 2011 had the equivalent environmental benefit of hundreds of thousands of miles not driven or thousands of trees planted. Thank you for supporting your community library and helping us help the environment of the Salt Lake valley.

The new library opened on October 23, 2010.
