Meeting Tonight to Discuss Silverado Branch Library Relocation

For our friends in the canyon areas:

OC Parks and OC Public Libraries invite the public to learn more about the relocation of the Silverado Branch Library to the former Silverado Elementary School site at 7531 Santiago Canyon Rd.  The meeting will include an estimated construction schedule for the library and multi-purpose room. The process for developing an overall general plan will also be presented. The public will be invited to provide input on desired uses for the multi-purpose room.  Once the work is complete on the building, OC Public Libraries plan to relocate an existing library on Silverado Canyon Road to the site.  Orange Unified School District sold the site to the County of Orange in 2013.  More information about the project and upcoming meetings will be posted at

The meeting is scheduled for tonight at 6 PM at the Silverado Elementary School.
