Yorba Linda Library & Cultural Arts Center

"Working on a construction project during the pandemic and opening a new library was no easy feat, but because Griffin Structures is professional, responsive, detail oriented and does what it takes to get the job done - any challenges were easily overcome. "

Carrie Lixey, Library Director, City of Yorba Linda

Griffin served as the construction manager for a new two-story 45,000 square-foot library and 13,500 square-foot arts center. Library features include expanded collections areas; dedicated spaces for story time, teens and tweens; a secure outdoor children’s area; small group study rooms; a community room and flexible classroom space; Friends of the Library book store; and improved technology features. The Cultural Arts Center includes a flexible 250-seat black box theater with state-of-the-art sound system, art and dance studios, and gallery display space.

The campus-like environment features a central paseo between the two structures, dedicated outdoor plazas, and a great lawn providing space for additional programming. Designs for the 4.7-acre site include drop-off areas, access for specialized backstage theater equipment, a 234-space parking area, on-site runoff capture, and native and drought-tolerant landscaping.
