Over two years after Hurricane Harvey flooded the building, the Meyer Neighborhood Library remains closed, but a new library in a new location is poised to replace it.

Houston City Council approved at $1.4 million contract to begin designing a new Westbury Neighborhood Library, a part of the Houston Public Library system, to replace the Meyer Neighborood Public Library. It will also house the Frank HPL Express Library, which currently occupies a leased space.

 

District K Council Member Martha Castex-Tatum said residents in her district are looking forward to having a new library, which would be located at 5505 Belrose Drive, Houston.

“Many of us know that we have been waiting for the library in the Westbury area to move forward," she said. "We have been without a true library in the area since Harvey ...We are making progress, and I’m happy to see great architecture here. The firm we selected was the 2018 American Institute Architects Houston firm of the year.”
