The Campaign for a permanent library for Piedmont Avenue begins!

Four years. We have four years left on our lease on the building on Echo Avenue that houses the Piedmont Avenue Branch Library.That’s about how much time it will take to secure a permanent home – all things considered – so we need to start now.

We will assign teams to interview city and library administrators to determine what funds are available for rent and improvements.

We will explore with OUSD officials if the derelict building next to the library could become our permanent home.

We will research several options for funding the library. For example, we’ll look into partnering with a developer or other builder or creating a special tax district for our area.

As you can see, we’ve got ideas; now we need foot soldiers. We need a variety of skills for this multi-year effort. Please contact the campaign at fopabl.org.
