21st Century Library and Heritage Plaza

Hayward's 21st Century Library and Heritage Plaza is the most environmentally sustainable project to ever begin construction in Hayward. Our new library will be located on the corner of Mission Boulevard and C Street in Downtown, between the post office and City parking garage. The current library site will be transformed into Heritage Plaza, returning to its historic roots as a central community gathering place and arboretum.
