Downtown library supporters offer an example of where a new building could be located – in this case, Parking Plaza 8 at Third and State streets.
Imagine a 40,000-square-foot public library occupying one of the city-owned parking plazas in downtown Los Altos. Imagine parking within the confines of the building, hidden from view. Imagine a large lecture hall and stage in the library that could house Los Altos Stage Company performances as well as library events.
Imaginations ran wild in the wake of a presentation that included such scenarios at an April 17 meeting of the Community Center Alliance (CCA), a grass-roots citizens group formed to provide input and direction on community center redevelopment.
