The new Eureka Hills Branch, located at 500 Workman Road, opened to the public June 2, 2021.


Project Details:

The new Eureka Hills Branch is the first full service library for residents of Eureka. The previous location was in a leased facility and was approximately 6,500 square feet in size. The new branch is 15,000+ square feet and features an expanded collection of materials–over 60% larger than the previous collection. 

 The new, dynamic children’s area is sponsored by McBride & Son Homes. It’s decorated in shades of teal, orange and peach and features a honeycomb motif with several carpeted reading nooks where kids can curl up with a book. The space includes kid-friendly furniture such as browsing bin shelving and oversized reading chairs, as well as interactive learning stations and computers. McBride & Sons Homes donated $100,000 to help fund the children’s area.

Other highlights of the branch include a space for teens, three private study rooms, a community meeting room with surround sound, a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines, a commons area with tables and laptop bar and a quiet reading area. There is also an outdoor reading patio.

$6.5 million. The Eureka project was not part of the ongoing Your Library Renewed campaign. The original Facilities Master Plan did not include a construction plan for the Eureka location. At the time the plan was developed, the branch had just moved into a larger space. Library administration has since determined that the growing community in Eureka needs a full service branch.
