An expanded Fair Oaks Library is scheduled for a grand reopening and ribbon cutting on June 23, according to Redwood City Public Library, which shared the above photo from the ongoing construction on Wednesday.

“We have carpet, we have data and power, and we have the beginning of a Farmers Market Truck,” according to library officials. “Next week we’ll have some furniture, some books, and some computers.”

The construction will expand the library at 2510 Middlefield Road from 3,200 to 3,800 square feet, with new technology and furniture, a Bilingual Farmers Market Truck interactive play area for early literacy skills and nutrition education, new adult seating for studying, new carpet and upholstery library-wide and more.

Construction began in early February. While the library is closed, a more limited library space has opened in the Fair Oaks Community Center at 2600 Middlefield Road.
