KCLS to hold public meeting on plans for downtown Renton library

The King County Library System will hold a public meeting and open house on plans for the new Renton Downtown Library from 6 p.m.-8 p.m., Sept. 13, at the Renton Pavilion Event Center.

The event center is located at 233 Burnett Ave. S., in downtown Renton.

The architectural team from Miller Hull Partnership will give a brief presentation and representatives from KCLS and the City of Renton will hear comments from the public and answer questions.

The forum is to discuss "what can be done with the location that we have," said Kay Johnson, director of facilities development for KCLS.

The organization wants to hear the public's ideas on the future library's use, not about the site selection, she said.

The architectural team will have general concepts for its design but nothing specific.

KCLS Director Bill Ptacek will attend, along with others from his staff.

The City of Renton will hold their first steering committee meeting for the new library on Sept. 28. They have selected 35 people from the applicants they received ahead of July 29.
