The new Centennial Hills Library is located on a 7-acre site located in the growing Northwest Las Vegas area. Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification the library improves the well-being and health of the occupant and reduces negative environment impacts.

The Library encompasses 30,000 square feet with an additional 15,000 square feet for a central operations center, which will become future expansion for the Library.

The project concept was to create a pavilion open to the city park to the north. The Library design shatters Library preconceptions by flooding the Library with indirect day lighting; eliminating any artificial general lighting needs. The facility includes a computer lab, a meeting room with a 62-seat capacity, a used bookstore and café area along with free Wi-Fi and wireless printing
