Old Town Newhall Library
The City of Santa Clarita celebrates Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification of their Old Town Newhall Library, in the historic downtown district of Newhall. A space that demonstrates “cutting edge design practices,” the library showcases some of today’s most efficient sustainable design features—natural daylighting, an energy efficient building envelope, efficient variable air volume fan units, and a water-cooled mechanical system, which is placed inside the building to preserve the historic nature of the exterior aesthetic.
The Old Town Newhall Library is a 28,000-square-foot, free-standing public library located within the historic Old Town Newhall area of Santa Clarita, California. This two-level library features a large community meeting space and public garden, vibrant children’s area, teen center, homework center, local history department and heritage reading room. The library is the first project completed as part of the new vision for the Newhall area. Historical references and public art root this library firmly into the eclectic history of the community.
