Beginning the week of November 3, two houses located at 1025 N Park Ave and 20 W 10 St were razed as seen in the above picture. The two former residences were razed by S2 Rolloffs, LLC. as part of Keene Memorial Library’s expansion and renovation project. Removing the houses will create a space for the library’s footprint to grow and include expanded parking.
Keene Memorial Library has been working on renovating their current facility since space assessments were done as far back as 2004. In 2018, the City of Fremont passed a $2 million dollar bond to help renovate the library as well as add new modern space and technology. “We are maxed out on capacity,” Interim Director Laura England-Biggs said.
