Mitchell Park Library and Community Center received its official Certificate of Occupancy on Oct. 9, the final step before the doors to the new center are open to the public. City staff has already started moving into the new facility, and are busy preparing for a "soft" opening to the public in early November. The official grand opening celebration is scheduled for Dec. 6.
The City has also received the temporary Certificate of Occupancy for the Rinconada Library, which is on track to open in January. Formerly known as Main Library, the Rinconada Library has been closed since the summer of 2013 for major renovations to the 56-year-old building. When reopened, the facility will include a new program room, study rooms and a teen center, along with upgraded electrical and mechanical systems. A “soft” opening is also planned prior to the grand opening celebration.
