OCTOBER 29, 2020: Cleveland Public Library is moving to the next chapter of the Facilities Master Plan. Starting next month, we want to share our plans with the community to build, renovate, and redesign our neighborhood branches. 


On Thursday, November 5, the Library will kick-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 first meeting will focus on the West Park Branch project. Attendees are encouraged to register.

The English Tudor style West Park Branch was built nearly a century ago by Cleveland architecture firm Walker and Weeks. Now, Vocon has been tapped to restore, update, and bring new life to this historic property.

“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 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.
