Dublin Library
Center for the 21st Century Skills and Learning

In partnership with Alameda County Library, the City of Dublin is constructing improvements in the Dublin Library to create a unique multi-function space.  The construction will take place from mid-July 2016 through late-fall 2016, and during that time, the City's contractor will make every effort  to minimize the impact on adjacent spaces and public uses.  The improvements will occur in the Dublin Library’s expansion space, which is adjacent to the Children’s Area and Program Room.  Once complete, the newly renovated space will become a multipurpose learning center where the Library can offer digital story time, gaming, coding classes, music and movement, arts programs, and classes for all ages.
