Construction on Signal Hill’s new library is officially underway! A groundbreaking ceremony in late January kicked things off, realizing a dream that’s been in the works for two decades. Mayor Edward H.J. Wilson led the ceremony, and after presentations from the Friends of the Library, and representatives from our state legislature, we broke out the “golden” shovels to commemorate the start of construction.
City Council, City staff, and our dedicated community members have been working for a new library since the late 1990’s. In the spring of 2016, the library moved to its temporary home in the community center, and the 85-year-old building was demolished over the summer to prepare for construction. Today, we are ready to welcome an exciting new community asset that will enrich the lives of our citizens for years to come. We hope you’ll follow us here as we update you on the construction of the new library, anticipated to open in the spring of 2019. We are looking forward to the next chapter!
