The Daily Journal is updating us on the library update project which will renew one of our restoration jewels in town
Construction is slated to begin Aug. 11 to upgrade Burlingame’s main Primrose Road library with the city hiring a construction firm to carry out the work.
The $3.5 million project will modify the downtown branch’s interior to meet the needs of modern patrons by providing flexible space for collaboration, creativity and exploration. The City Council awarded a $1.74 million construction contract to Zolman Construction and Development to create the new tech and media lab with updated computers and LCD screens, video conferencing capabilities, four group study rooms, new conference room that fits 20 people, expanded teen area, a Burlingame Library Foundation bookstore and café, along with new carpeting. Officials are excited for the changes, which are targeted to be completed in April 2015.
Here is the teen area set for expansion. It's usually quite busy when I go by there.
