The Aurora Hills Branch Library is about to get new protection from the elements.
Work on the roof at the Aurora Hills Center — comprised of the Library, a Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources community center, and the Fire Department’s former Station 5 (now used for storage) — will begin on Thursday, Nov. 18.
Work will continue for at least two months as the roof is replaced section by section. But Library patrons may not notice the activity literally above their heads because the “demolition” of each section will take place before public hours, and staging for equipment will be behind the building.
The $240,000 project will be overseen by the Department of Environmental Services. The Aurora Hills Center opened in 1978 and once also housed the County’s Visitor’s Information Center. This is the first time the County has installed a new roof at the Aurora Hills Center in decades.
