21st Century Library - Planning and Progress to Date

Here's an update on the planning and progress of the 21st Century Library project. Much of the preliminary planning drew on community needs as identified through a 5-year planning process that focused on sustainable facilities and services. The project will serve 277,000 people projected to reside in the areas surrounding the north facility, the East, and the Penrose Libraries by 2016. It will reach families of all ages, income levels, and ethnicities.
