Los Osos residents prefer to expand current library site

Posted at 6:44 PM, Nov 14, 2019

It looks like Los Osos residents want to keep their library right where it is.

The popular library sees an average of 7,000 patrons per month and is looking to expand.

At a community meeting earlier this month, residents had a chance to vote for their preferred location for the library.

The current site on Palisades Ave. received the most favorable votes, 58, with just six votes against it.

Other possible locations were at the corner of Los Osos Valley Road and Palisades Ave., a vacant lot on Palisades Ave. between St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and the tennis courts, and a site between the tennis courts on Palisades Ave. and the South Bay Community Center.

The library hopes to expand to nearly double its current square footage.

Another community meeting about the library expansion is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on December 2 at the South Bay Community Center.
