Sayville Public Library Brings Green Design to South Shore

A new library on Long Island’s south shore boasts a number of interesting green design features, including a geothermal heating and cooling system.

Sayville Public Library

Founded in 1914, the Sayville Public Library on Long Island’s south shore recently completed construction of a new facility to replace its existing 11,000-square-foot space. Designed and engineered by Melville-based H2M Group along with local architects LPA Associates of Roslyn Heights, the new 2-story, 38,000-square-foot library was dedicated back on June 28 and boasts a number of green design features, including a geothermal heating and cooling system and building-integrated solar panels.

Although the project did not seek any third-party certification for its efforts, its design also includes efficient plumbing fixtures and a variety of measures aimed at boosting indoor air quality. The additional square footage increased the library’s children and young adult sections and also created additional programming space and meeting rooms. The Sayville Public Library is located at 88 Greene Avenue in Sayville; Park East Construction built the project, which broke ground on January 17, 2008.
