Library renovation planned
A renovation of part of the Park City Library and Education Center is planned in the fall and library officials are seeking opinions about the ideas.
The library has scheduled two open houses on the same day next week to inform people about the project and poll them about what they would like incorporated into the blueprints.
The open houses are scheduled on Tuesday. One is from 4:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. and the other is from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. They will be in Room 205. Each will offer the same information.
A redo of the second floor of the building outside the library space itself is under consideration. The space now includes classrooms and a preschool. The preschool would move to the third floor, leaving other possibilities in the space on the second floor.
Linda Tillson, the library director, said potential uses in the second floor space include creating new quiet study places or additional space for the library collection. The children’s and teen sections could be expanded, she said.
Park City has hired an architectural firm to assist. City Hall has not prepared a budget estimate for the work.
The two open houses will include a presentation and interactive polling.
For more information, contact Tillson at 615-5605 or Matt Twombly, a project manager at City Hall, at 615-5177.
Two people indicated in interviews they are considering mounting campaigns for the Park City Council, a signal the City Hall election could attract an intriguing slate of candidates in a year when the majority of the five seats are on the ballot.
