Co-located, or joint-use libraries defined

The California Reading and Literacy Improvement and Public Library Construction and Renovation Bond Act of 2000, also known in shorthand as the Library Bond Act of 2000, provided grant funds for public library construction and renovation projects.  The first priority for grant funding was “given to joint-use projects in which the agency that operates the library and one or more school districts have a cooperative agreement.” 

The regulations defined joint use in two ways:

  • A library in which a public library and a school library are to be co-located in a single building, either on or off of school grounds
     

  • A public library-school district partnership which provides joint venture library services within the public library

There were a total of 45 grants awarded from the Library Bond Act of 2000 funds.  In addition to the Mariners Library, there were only four other co-located libraries.  Details about these libraries, including photos, planning documents, and project contact information are available by clicking the links, which will direct you to the OLC website.
