PLANS DEVELOPED FOR OAKVILLE LIBRARY

June 1, 2011

Initial plans have been developed for a new Oakville Timberland Library and community center at the site of the Oakville School District elementary school building, currently used for minimal office functions and storage of school equipment. The proposed project would upgrade unused classrooms, the kitchen and cafeteria into a public/school library. The refurbished building would also serve as a museum, which would feature Native American culture and a community center with a full commercial kitchen. Oakville School District officials have expressed enthusiasm over the prospect of a newer, larger and closer library to enhance access for students to informational and educational resources. The estimated cost for the project in today’s dollars is $2.5 million, which includes site work, demolition and permitting, foundation and structural construction, interior construction including mechanical and electrical work along with equipment and related labor expenses. Funding for the project is anticipated to come from grants and donations.
