Herriman Public Library was designed to be LEED Platinum, with an emphasis on energy effciency. The project was also intended to qualify for an Energy Star design label while incorporating cutting-edge energy management and control technology. It was constructed using environmentally responsible techniques and resources, and the building form and orientation adhere to design concepts which minimize energy usage and promote natural daylighting techniques.
The library serves people of all ages with emphasis given to the children and teen areas. Complete with a variety of meeting spaces, the library is a resource for the community extending beyond the traditional role that libraries have previously served.
