Ferndale’s renovated library has recently been the subject of a significant amount of public attention, particularly from organizations that have praised its energy efficiency.
Two of the best recent articles are here:
Beautiful photographs of the library are among the highlights of a feature spread in DTE Energy’s “Energy Smarts of Michigan” Winter 2011 edition which can be found online here: http://www.dteenergy.com/residentialCustomers/productsPrograms/electric/energySmartsMagazine.html
A short version containing just the Ferndale article can be found here: Ferndale Public Library 2011
At the same time, GreeningDetroit.com has published a nice piece on the recent tour of the library hosted for the local chapter of the US Green Building Council (USGBC): http://www.greeningdetroit.com/2011/12/05/ferndale-public-library-re-defines-public-place/
