California: After a Six Million Dollar Renovation, Languna Niguel Public Library Scheduled to Re-Open This Sunday

The Laguna Niguel Library is part a of  Orange County Public Libraries.

From The Orange County Register:

After nearly two years of construction and delays, Laguna Niguel’s multi-million dollar library renovation project is finally coming to a close. Construction started in October 2010 to expand and remodel the facility, which officials said wasn’t adequate enough to serve Laguna Niguel, and the grand opening is set for Sunday. The total project cost is about $5.9 million, of which the county contributed $1.5 million and the city is funding more than $4 million.


Nearly 4,000 square feet was added to the library as part of the work, including a new community room. The style of the new facility, with spacious rooms complemented by elegant, modern architecture, looks and feels a lot like the City Hall building across the way, which was itself completed just last year.

“The good news is Laguna Niguel will be ground zero for state-of-the art libraries in the state, if not the nation,” said Mayor Paul Glaab. “We want something that’s state-of-the art so that we become the model for other libraries when they go through renovation. At least Orange County and Laguna Niguel will have something we can point to that is … something we can all be proud of.”
