The city of Santa Clarita will host a groundbreaking event for the new Old Town Newhall Library on Tuesday, March 16 at 2 p.m.

Mayor Laurene Weste, the City Council, city staff and community partners will be on hand at the event, held at the library's future location at the corner of Lyons and Main Street in Old Town Newhall.

The new Old Town Newhall Library will offer a larger, two-story, modernized facility to suit the growing needs of the community. As the city's second LEED-certified building, the facility will also help to protect the environment by meeting the highest standard for environmental sustainability, with the majority of the facility comprised of recycled, repurposed and sustainable materials.

"The new Old Town Newhall Library will house a book and media capacity of more than 135,000 items and guests will enjoy access to a total of 190 reader seats, 68 public computers, and 110 meeting seats," Mayor Laurene Weste said. "When you count the library's incredible features, along with its aesthetic design, there's no question that the new facility is sure to better serve the needs of our growing community for years to come."

The first floor of the Old Town Newhall Library will include a children's library, teen area, technology center, community meeting room, browsing and reading lounge, homework center, exhibition Gallery and more.

The second story of the building will offer fiction and non-fiction collections containing 75,000 volumes collectively, a reference and technology area, quiet reading area, local history section and small group meeting rooms.

The second floor will also include a beautiful and relaxing fireplace reading room featuring a current magazine inventory for guests to browse.
