On November 9, 2018 Otto Construction, the City of Capitola and Noll & Tam Architects celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Capitola Branch Library. This project consists of the demolition of the existing library and construction of a new 11,700SF library. The new building will be flexible and modern, incorporating quiet outdoor reading spaces and better connections to its surroundings with features such as a pedestrian walkway to the nearby creek. With a serene, light-filled reading room, a vibrant children’s area, a community porch and meeting room, the new library is designed to bring people together and nurture engagement.
