Your October 20, 2019 Morgan Hill Weekly 411
Greetings Morgan Hill!

You may have already seen that a local treasure, the Morgan Hill Library, is expanding and construction is underway! The project is an addition of approximately 2,500 square feet of space and will take approximately nine months to complete. The Library's hours and programs remain the same during that time. Most of the parking lot remains open and street parking is available.

More information is available about other construction and development projects going on in Morgan Hill.
Have a safe week ahead and be prepared!
