City officials have tentatively agreed to buy the Bank of America building on East Chapman Avenue for $850,000 and to help fund a new main library on the site. City Council members had decided last winter to spend at least $1 million to renovate the 35-year-old Orange Central Library on Center Street at Chapman. They were prepared to spend as much as $2.6 million, but then the Bank of America building next to the library became available in July.

The Main Library will close for renovation Dec. 24, but how much of a face-lift is needed will be debated today by the City Council. The Department of Community and Library Services is seeking a complete overhaul at a cost of about $2.6 million, about $1 million more than the original targeted amount. Some city officials have questioned spending that much on the project when the library may face demolition--perhaps within 10 years--for a larger library complex.

A $1-million renovation of the main library cleared another step this week when the City Council approved a general architectural plan for the project. Even with the renovation, city officials said a new main library will be needed in the next three to 10 years. "We have to be careful about turning this library into a Cadillac," Mayor Joanne Coontz said. "The perception will be that we don't need a new library."
