Open House Meeting

Purchase of Property for C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Library Replacement
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 26, 2016) - Hillsborough County has scheduled a public information meeting for Thursday, Nov. 3, to gather input into the purchase of property adjacent to the C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Library. The open-house format meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the library, 2607 E. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Tampa.

The .27-acre parcel, currently occupied by a single-family dwelling, is located immediately east of the library. The purchase is part of a project to build a larger facility that will replace the current library. The total cost for the property is approximately $152,000, and will be funded through the Capital Improvement Program.

Staff from Real Estate & Facilities Services and Library Services will be available at the meeting to answer questions and hear comments.

At approximately 8,500 square feet, the current library is considered too small for the number of customers who use the facility. The new building is currently under design. Construction is expected to begin in 2017. For more information about the library project, go to the project page.
