That vacant lot at the corner of Glendale Blvd--right down the street from Silver Lake Reservoir--will house the forthcoming Silver Lake Library, which is set to start construction this August/September, according to Michael Saint-Onge, head of Friends of the Silver Lake Library. "The project is out to bid," Saint-Onge tells us, adding that multiple contractors are currently bidding on the project. The yellow auto body/ tire shop next to the lot will be demolished for the library, which should be completed by late 2008/early 2009. Also, get out the champagne and hard hats: there'll be a little ground-breaking party this summer, according to Saint-Onge.
