Friends of the Library of Los Altos volunteers are responsible for carting boxes of books back and forth between a storage facility and designated classroom space at Hillview Community Center, as well as sorting books for their periodic sales. Supporters of the nonprofit group asked the Los Altos City Council May 14 for dedicated space in the wake of Hillview’s imminent overhaul.
The Los Altos City Council May 14 voted unanimously to continue a plea for help from the Friends of the Library of Los Altos in the form of a request for a no-cost lease agreement to help the group transition out of Hillview Community Center prior to its upcoming demolition.
The Friends were notified a year ago that the design for the new Hillview Community Center did not include space for them, according to City Manager Chris Jordan. Jordan plans to meet with the volunteer organization’s board as early as this week to identify a solution prior to their eviction at the end of the month.
