It was only eight years ago, on January 7, 2006, that the new Main Library at 601 Santa Monica Blvd. opened. The library was designed by architects Moore Ruble Yudell and features many sustainable components and was the City of Santa Monica's second major facility after the Public Safety building designed and built to significantly reduce the site's negative impact on the environment. The building is 104,000 square feet.
