Sarasota News Leader The space is located in the southwest part of the mall, just north of the JCPenney store. Herrli noted the space "is also large enough to allow the library to con- tinue to offer some youth and adult programs. Other sites investigated would require portions of the collection to be placed in storage and their size would allow limited programming op- portunities." Kalajian's memo points out that the relocation was necessary because a new two-story library will be constructed on the site of the existing facility, at 7112 Curtiss Ave. The groundbreaking is set for February 2013, with completion expect- ed in May 2014, accord- ing to Herrli's memo. In June, the commission approved the conceptual design for the facility and the hiring of the Willis A. Smith as construction manager. % November 16, 2012 Page 49 A Sarasota County diagram shows the temporary location chosen for Gulf Gate Library in Westfield Sarasota Square Mall.
