Evergreen Branch Expansion Update

November 16, 2018

On October 23rd construction bids for the Evergreen expansion and renovation were opened. The apparent low bid is Faber Construction. The proposed total project cost is $6,900,000, which includes design, construction, project costs, sales tax, and contingencies. 

The first City Council reading to adopt the proposed budget for the project was on November 14. The third and final reading will be on November 28, with anticipation of the award of the construction contract in late November. 

It is anticipated that the library will close to the public at the end of December, and construction will begin in January. An exact date of when the Evergreen Branch will close will be shared in late November.

The Evergreen Branch expansion project is moving forward! 

In order to be financially responsible, a few project items are being re-designed to reduce the estimated cost of construction. This means the project has been delayed a few months.

We currently anticipate a library closure in late 2018 or early 2019. We'll hold a grand re-opening party later that year. Stay tuned for updates!
