West End Library Needs Helping Hands

Friends, supporters and users of the West End Library are hosting a Spring Spruce Up from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 12.

The library, located at 788 Santa Clara Avenue, will provide refreshments to those community members who come do weeding and clipping.

Children are invited, with parental supervision.

All volunteers are asked to bring their favorite pair of work or gardening gloves.

The City of Alameda spent about $2 million upgrading to accessibility, electrical and data systems, furniture, lighting fixtures, and finishes at the library several years ago. It also ensured that the building had needed structural and seismic improvements, which were completed in June 2011, by Noll & Tam Architects of Berkeley.
