Los Angeles, CA — On Tuesday the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved plans for the Norwalk Library Refurbishment Project. The vote follows Supervisor Janice Hahn’s June 2019 motion authorizing $4 million in 4th Supervisorial District Capital Funds to go towards a refurbishment of the Norwalk Library. The Los Angeles County Development Authority will oversee the construction and development of the Project as it now goes to bids following Tuesday’s vote.
“The Norwalk Library has been a community resource for decades and it’s time it gets a little TLC,” said Supervisor Hahn. “I am excited about this next step in the refurbishment process and am looking forward to a final product that everyone in the community can come together and enjoy.”
The Project, located at 12350 Imperial Highway in the City of Norwalk, will provide for the refurbishment of the existing library, including: minor interior demolition, carpet, paint, refurbishment of public areas, upgrades to ADA restrooms, selected areas for furniture and shelving, and a new circulation desk.
Construction on the Project will begin in April. The Norwalk Library will close in mid-March, whereupon a triple-wide modular will open at the same site, preventing gaps in service to the Norwalk community. Construction is expected to be completed by late November 2020 with a grand re-opening scheduled for December.
