NC State University has committed to lead by example in advancing sustainability as a moral imperative and as an economic advantage; The Hunt Library is a model of that leadership.

Shaded by its graceful solar fins, warming its water with rooftop solar panels, cooled and heated by innovative chilled beam and radiant panel systems, filtering storm runoff with beautiful green roofs and the Rain Garden, and flooded with natural light, the building has been designed for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver environmental rating.
