The City of Santa Cruz has proposed to relocate the Santa Cruz Downtown Public Library into the ground floor of a new five story parking garage.
The Downtown Library Advisory Committee (DLAC) was formed to study the options for a new library facility.
Don't Bury the Library! is opposed to the relocation of the Santa Cruz Library Downtown Branch into a new five story parking garage on the parking lot bordered by Lincoln, Cedar and Cathcart Streets, where the Farmer's Market currently meets.
Our purpose is to unhinge the library from the proposed parking garage for all the right reasons; thus our campaign name Don't Bury The Library (DBTL).
Don't Bury the Library! supports one of two options for the downtown library:
The DBTL web site is a repository for all we are able to glean regarding a Downtown Library building project. In other words, this website will be, appropriately, an organized and user-friendly library of information.
Please use the Contact Us form to request to be added to an e-list for updates and newsletters in the months ahead, specific to the Downtown Library. There will be eleven meetings of the recently formed Downtown Advisory Library Committee between now and the middle of December. Go to the Calendar page for dates and times of meetings and events,
Since there will be ample provision for public input on this project, our goal is to educate, through information, anyone who cares to engage in our campaign.
