A new chapter for Palo Alto’s Main Library; 18-month, $22.6M renovation project begins

“If Palo Alto’s Main Library was a book, its binding would be falling apart, its pages worn and tattered.

But that won’t be the case for much longer. On Tuesday, the city closed the branch at 1213 Newell Road for an 18-month renovation project. The aim is to upgrade the 55-year-old building’s “bones” — the structural, electrical and mechanical systems — while preserving the integrity of architect Edward Durrell Stone’s iconic design.” (via San Jose Mercury News)
