csv_model3.jpg  What do the Castro Valley Library and Paul Revere have in common?  APRIL 18th.

The poem goes “on the eighteenth of April, in seventy-five, Hardly a man is still alive who remembers that famous day and year”. 

That date is about to be famous for another reason here in Castro Valley.  We are finally breaking ground on our new library on Friday April 18th 2008!!

You are invited to join the  Alameda County Board of   Supervisors, and the Alameda County Library at the Ground Breaking for the New Castro Valley Library. 

Please join us at 3:30 pm, 3600 Norbridge Ave. Castro Valley for this long awaited community triumph.

Why did it take so long? I kept driving by and nothing for yrs. Finally. How long is it going to take to finally be open to the public?

We are all sorry that this has taken so long! The project is funded with local money, redevelopment funds and with a grant from the State Library. All the agencies supplying funds have a variety of regulations and requirements that must be met before we can go on to the next stage in the process. We are moving forward at the same pace as the other grant funded libraries.
We are looking to open the new library in the Fall of 2009.

Congratulations!!
I have lived in Castro Valley for over 25 years and have been a loyal patron of the library. It has taken a long time to get a new library, so I send my heartfelt thanks to all of you who accomplished this feat. Job well done!

I remember when the “old Library”, was first opened. What a improvement over the previous one, on Castro Valley Blvd. Am now looking forward, to the new libarary, and sure that I will feel the same way that I did 47 years ago!!
