Some residents of Laguna Niguel, California, are trying to save the city’s only library from being demolished as part of a proposed redevelopment project. The upcoming Laguna Niguel Town Center is in its preliminary development stages, with plans for retail, restaurants, office space, apartments, and outdoor community areas. A new library is also planned for it, but residents are skeptical that it will match the current facility in size and available programming. Julie and Bob Davey are spearheading the battle to preserve the current library, which has been there for over 30 years.
