Join us to make our Central Library a great library!

The Central Library Renovation Campaign: Our Next Chapter - to enrich and enhance the renovations to our Central library

The City will be embarking on a long-awaited project to renovate the Central Library. Expected completion date is Spring 2022. The original design of the Central Library will be updated, while square footage on the east end of the library will be added to accommodate new spaces to allow for the changing needs of our community. The City is building a good library. We plan to add the things needed to make it a great library!

We will make the children’s area one that kids clamor to visit, a Veterans Resource Center we can all be proud to provide our deserving vets, as well as other features. Generous gifts to the Whittier Public Library Foundation will be recognized with donor recognition to acknowledge the commitment supporting these vital areas:

  • Local History room
  • Veterans Resource Center
  • Community room
  • Homework Center
  • Children’s Library furnishing
  • Children’s story area
  • Computer lab
  • Teen lounge
  • Teen Study room
  • Makerspace
  • Conference Room
  • Library Electronic Portal

Please join us in this endeavor! For more information email: read@whittierplf.org or contact Vice President of Fundraising: Sue Settlage at suesettlage@gmail.com
