This mechanical improvement project will provide new heating and cooling system to the library. The current heat-only system was installed in 1970 during the original construction of the facility and it is does not meet the modern cooling requirements for patrons and staff. Hot summer days are causing closures of the facility. After the improvements, this community asset would be able to act as a climate island during heat events.
The estimate for the project is $500,000 and it is funded through Measure A.
The construction for this project will take place between 4:00 am and 12:00 pm; the library hours will be adjusted to 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Monday- Friday.
