There is a Santa Clarita Public Library branch in Canyon Country, Newhall and Valencia – and now, the City is looking to locate, design, construct and program its fourth library in the Saugus community by the year 2020. However, this will be more than just a library; the building will act as both a library and community center for the Saugus neighborhoods.
The concept plan:
- Multi-generational family destination and gathering place for all Santa Clarita residents
- Vibrant community hub with unique indoor and outdoor spaces
- A place where learning, exploration, imagination and play can happen simultaneously in the same area
Engaging the Saugus Library Service Area in the Planning Process
The Needs Assessment focused on the Saugus Library Service Area, and engaged the community through surveys and focused community meetings.
