SAN JOSE—The planning and design is complete for three Northern California libraries, San Jose’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library, Monterey County’s Pajaro Branch Library and Mendocino County’s Willits Library. Each of the libraries is a recipient of a $10,000 Maximizing Learning Spaces/MLS Grant.

The MLS Grant Project helps underfunded public libraries transform underutilized spaces, maximizing the potential for reading, literacy and learning. The 2020 grant enabled 20 libraries to apply for and fund one underutilized interior space per library, either via a professional design or for furniture. These evaluations, furnishings and redesigns maximize the effectiveness of a space. Despite this year’s pandemic challenges, virtual planning and design allowed MLS projects to move forward.
