History

The Stoney Creek Branch Library opened its doors on November 30, 2010. The fully-accessible facility offers a suite of cultural, leisure and recreational services, including Spectrum programs offered by the City through the YMCA, the Community Partner sharing the facility, and a full service, 8000 square foot Library Branch.

A reflection of the demographics of the neighbourhood, the centre is designed to engage the community and satisfy residents' needs for all aspects and ages of their lives.

The library has large fiction and subject collections and a range of spaces such as a "Discover Place" showcasing high demand and topical collections, a wonderful children's area, an inviting Teen Annex, a leisure reading area and study rooms.

It has been built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold specifications, which means it is exceptionally environmentally friendly in design, construction and operation. Sustainable design features include provision for bicycle storage/ alternative vehicles, green roof/ white roof, water conservation (eg. no irrigation for landscaping), optimized energy performance, energy efficient lighting, designated recycling area, use of local materials, indoor environment quality including low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) materials, pollutant controls, thermal and lighting controls, 90% daylit spaces. The building is designed to be 62% more efficient than that of the Model Nation Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB). It is expected to achieve a gold rating in the LEED green building rating system by

  • optimizing water efficiency
  • energy efficiency
  • materials and resources
  • indoor environment quality
  • and innovative design.
