The Houston Public Library is planning a new neighborhood library on the northwest corner of Griggs Road and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, to replace the existing Alice McKean Young Neighborhood Library at 5260 Griggs Road. The project is funded by the OST/Almeda Corridors Redevelopment Authority, a local government corporation which administers Reinvestment Zone Number Seven (TIRZ #7).
HPL is seeking inviting, friendly architecture to attract and retain customers. HPL facilities should be a beacon in the neighborhood, signaling customer service in a safe, comfortable environment; a place for learning and meeting that is welcoming for the whole community.
Timeline: Design has begun. Construction is planned to begin next summer and will last about a year. The new library is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2014.
