The Friends broke ground on the new Back Patio project. in August 2012, the initial hardscape has been installed, this included demolishing the existing exterior, installing drainage and decking. Phase 2A - plants, final irrigation, mulch etc. is now underway, with phase 2B and phase 3 on hold until funds become available.
To help with our fundraising efforts you can leave a permanent legacy at the library - sponsor one of the Commemorative Planks on the patio. The Planks are made of Ipé an almost magical South American hardwood. The USDA Forest Service Products Laboratory gives Ipé top marks for bug- and rot-resistance, and the wood is so hard, it's nearly as difficult to burn as concrete. Check out this sponsorship opportunity now, planks are $200. Like the bricks at the Library entrance, once we sell all the Commemorative Planks the opportunity will be gone.
Building of the Scotts Valley Library Started in Summer 2010

Formerly, the Scotts Valley Roller Rink, the new library retains the original wood beams and 20 foot ceiling but everything else is 21st century. The building features natural lighting provided by sun tubes and large picture windows combined with modern intimate space lighting.
There is a dedicated area for teens which features a gaming wall, elevated seating area and two group study rooms.
