The primary structural system of the building is pre-manufactured Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels. The lumber was donated by Sierra Pacific and the panels were assembled by Vaagen Timbers. Foundation is concrete stem walls with spread footings. The CLT roof panels above the reading room are supported by steel trusses. Finished interior of the building is primarily the exposed structural CLT members.

Mass Timber Scope
North American forests grew this much wood in 21 seconds.
This project kept 160 metric tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere.
This is the equivalent of keeping 34 cars off the road or providing clean power to 31 houses for a year.
