Planning and Design of North LibraryThe Department of Library Services and Long Beach Development Services will host the second Community Discussion on Site Planning and Design of the North Library on Saturday, May 7. The discussion will be held from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the North Neighborhood Library, 5571 Orange Ave.

The new North Branch Library and Community Center is planned for construction on the 5800 block of Atlantic Avenue, in the heart of the North Village Center. Measuring approximately 24,000 square feet in size, the LEED Gold facility will complement the City of Long Beach’s drive for sustainability and stand as an attractive, state of the art center of community pride.

At a previous community workshop on plans for the North Village Center held last October, a group of 150 participants determined locations for the library, a community plaza, and a possible neighborhood market. At this discussion, participants will have the chance to voice their wishes for the new library and community center, including the look and feel, features, operational needs and use of space.
