Redwood City's Schaberg Branch Library to be Temporarily Closed for Remodeling

Redwood City, CA - February 20, 2004 - Redwood City’s Schaberg branch library located at 2140 Euclid Avenue will temporarily close beginning March 1st, 2004 for a long-awaited remodeling. This branch library’s renovation is more than just a ‘face-lift’ – it will greatly improve and enhance the facility, in order to better serve the community of Redwood City.

The library will be closed for an estimated four-to-six months for this $450,000 renovation that will include installing an elevator to allow easier public access to the lower level meeting room, remodeling restrooms for wheelchair access, improving telephone and Internet access, and generally refurbishing to make the library more vibrant, efficient, and welcoming. After clearing out all the library materials and making other preparations for the remodeling project, construction is expected to begin in May. The work is anticipated to be completed by late summer/early fall. Renovation of the Schaberg branch library is being paid for out the city’s Capital Improvement Funds.

During this temporary closure for renovation, those people that normally visit the Schaberg branch are invited to visit Redwood City’s Main Library or Fair Oaks branch library for the City’s wide selection of library services and programs. Materials previously checked out from Schaberg may be returned to the either of those facilities, or to any other public library in San Mateo County. Library patrons are also being given information handouts at all Redwood City public libraries.

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and helps our community to “understand the past, prepare for the future, and thrive in the present.” For more information about library events and services you may pick up a calendar in any Redwood City library, visit the library’s home page at, or call 780-7026.
