Library Modernization Project

The Downey City Library will undergo a complete renovation that will transform it into a true 21st Century public learning environment, furthering its mission "to ignite a community of creative and critical thinkers." The renovation and construction is expected to last over a year, which will force a complete shutdown of on-site library operations. However, Library staff and selected programs will be retained and more information on these programs will be available.

IMPROVEMENTS include the modernization of the City's Library by reconfiguring interior spaces, replacing interior finishes, books and data storage furniture, installation of energy efficient lighting, completion of ADA improvements, new doors and signage, as well as exterior painting of the building.
