BURNEY, Calif. – Redding city leaders announced Tuesday that the Burney Library will be moving to a new location at 37116 Main Street.

Shasta County closed escrow on the building on May 14, 2020. City leaders said this culminates years of fundraising and the combined efforts of many.

In a news release, city leaders highlighted the help of Friends of the Intermountain Libraries and a general contractor, Kevin McKay, who volunteered 200 plus hours to the project.

“The new Burney Library is a testament to this small, but determined community’s desire to provide first-rate learning opportunities for its youth, access to free technology and shared community meeting spaces,” said Kim Niemer, City of Redding Community Services Director and the Library’s project manager. “It was on old fashioned barn-raising with volunteers and donations coming from a wide range of individuals to foundations. The new Library touts many special touches including a circulation desk crafted by local woodworker Stephen Wolf, a mural of Burney Falls, wood siding from Sierra Pacific Industries, and lots of color.”

The new building is more than twice the size of the old location, including two study rooms, a large community meeting room with teleconferencing equipment, and dedicated children’s area.

An opening celebration date has not yet been set.
