Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library
The Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library is the community centerpiece of a joint-use development project between the City of Sacramento and the Sacramento City United School District. The Library adjoins the 6.6-acre Sojourner Truth Park and the School of Engineering and Sciences High School. The single story 15,400SF (LEED Silver) library features a variety of special spaces catering to all interest groups and activities. Special attention was given to
the unique spatial needs for toddlers, kids, teens, and adult users. A highly efficient and organized plan was critical to tie all these spaces together while maintaining separation of public and private staff spaces. Natural light into the core of the Library and views to the outdoor were additional critical elements considered.The Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library is truly a “place-to- be” and a destination for not just the immediate community but the entire City of Sacramento.
