San Lorenzo Library expansion groundbreaking on Feb. 19

SAN LORENZO — Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan will lead a groundbreaking Feb. 19 for expansion of the San Lorenzo Library.

The project is the first major exterior renovation of the library in 45 years, according to a press release. When the $9.4 million work is finished, the library will be almost 20,000 square feet, twice its current size. It also will be the first certified green building in San Lorenzo, according to the release.

The San Lorenzo Library expansion will be the first project under Alameda County’s Project Stabilization Agreement, which promotes training and hiring of target populations, such as veterans and low-income residents.

The groundbreaking will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the library, 395 Paseo Grande, San Lorenzo.

During construction, a temporary library has been set up around the corner at 16032 Hesperian Blvd.
