2020: Not a very good year so far. But there is ongoing activity in Turlock that should make everyone’s days a bit brighter.
The walls of the antiquated Turlock Public Library are in the process of being torn down and the remodeling and expansion of the 10,000 sq. ft. library to the new 17,000 sq. ft. has begun. The 52-year-old dinosaur that has served our community so well for so long will now be a state-of-the-art masterpiece that will make citizens of Turlock proud.
There will be an expanded teen section, an attached courtyard (with vegetation) more computer space and computers, rooms to reserve for studying, meeting rooms, a Friends of the Turlock Public Library Bookstore and a large children’s center with a private fully functional bathroom just for the children and so much more.
You can follow the remodeling progress online at the Friends of the Turlock Public Library or the Turlock Library on Facebook or on their websites. You may want to be more than a frequent user of the library. You may have ideas to share, you may want to volunteer. Go ahead. This is YOUR library. Go online and stay connected. Be part of Turlock’s new source of pride. See you in the Spring of 2021.
