Duncan Library

The Duncan Library green roof is the first green roof in Alexandria, VA.  The green roof was designed into the plans for the new library after avid citizens and city officials promoted green roofing as a way to deal with strict stormwater runoff standards.  The Duncan Library is a 2,850 square feet planted with four species of sedum creating a meadow-like appearance.  Elaina Palincsar, Chair, Landscaping and Beautification Committee of the Friends of Duncan Library’s says in their December 2007 Newsletter, “We plan to support it with literature about green roofs so that it can be a resource for ecology education to the community.”
