Recent News About the Library
Many locals and city officials agree that the library has outgrown the space it is in. Rather than expanding the current building, the City is interested in adaptive reuse of the space to serve proposed uses and activities in the adjoining Altos Del Mar Park. The optimal place to relocate the North Shore Library is somewhere in the town's center, where it will contribute to the vitality and mix of uses that will draw people there for multiple purposes. There are several possible strategies for moving the library. One is for a private sector developer to provide library space in a mixed-use development in consideration of appropriate public incentives. Another is to build a new library on City-owned property, possibly as part of a parking structure.
