Hayberger, Johann Gotthard (1695–1764). With Hüeber, Hayberger is credited with the design of the Baroque library of the Benedictine Abbey of Admont (c.1745–66— completed by Hüber in 1776). He was also responsible for the library of the Benedictine Abbey of St Florian (1744–50—based on Prandtauer's plans), and designed the Rathaus (Town Hall) (1765–78—a Rococo palace with a handsome tower), and several town houses in Steyr.
