Caledonia Twp. Branch is LEED Certified

Our Caledonia Township branch is not only family friendly, it is also environmentally friendly. The branch was recently named a LEED–Certified project. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. It has become the go-to standard for sustainable and green building.

Some of the significant factors leading to the library’s LEED certification include:

  • Locally sourced building materials
  • Triple pane windows
  • Metal roof with high reflectivity
  • Occupancy sensors for lighting
  • Low maintenance grass and plantings with no irrigation to limit water use
  • Rapidly renewable cork and linoleum used for flooring and wallcovering
  • Bicycle racks and shower/changing areas for employees

Our appreciation goes out to all the people involved in the design and construction of this energy-efficient, sustainable library.
