Funded in part by the California Library Bond Act of 2000, the Redding Library embodies the aspirations of the town of Redding, California. This 55,000-square-foot public library features an outdoor community area, an expanded local history area, a 200-seat community room, heritage room, teen center, children's library and garden, technology training center, book store, coffee bar and drive-thru book drop.

The Redding Library proves to be a project rich in historical references and sensitive to energy-efficient design strategies. The sustainable elements of the library include a 7,000-square-foot vegetated green roof, photovoltaic power, thermal energy storage, indirect lighting and extensive use of recycled and recyclable materials.
