The Library hosts meetings to update the community on the status of its Facilities Master Plan

Cleveland Public Library is moving to the next chapter of the Facilities Master Plan (FMP). We want to share our plans with the community to build, renovate, and redesign our neighborhood branches.

Beginning November, the Library kicked off a series of design and construction meetings about the first phase of projects. All sessions will be held online at 4 p.m.

“The design and construction meetings will serve as a status update to the public,” said John Lang, Chief Operating Officer at Cleveland Public Library. “The People’s University is for the people, and we are committed to making them a part of the process, keeping them informed about the designs to create the best branch for each neighborhood.”

Gilbane Building Company representatives will discuss subcontracting opportunities during the meetings. Contractors who are interested in working on any of the Library projects should visit here to begin the prequalification process. “Cleveland Public Library supports the diversity of our workforce. Our goal is to form partnerships with businesses and contractors who will create buildings that mirror the community we serve,” remarks Lang.
