The Board of Supervisors Tuesday tentatively approved spending $2.1 million to buy a site for a new library in Arcadia.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich recommended the purchase of the 22,000- square-foot parcel at 22 W. Live Oak Blvd., which is still subject to a public hearing.

“This vital acquisition is a step forward in securing and building a new library facility with the support of the Monrovia-Arcadia-Duarte Town Council, the city of Arcadia and our county librarian,” Antonovich said.

The existing Arcadia library branch has been located in a 2,891-square- foot leased space at 4153 W. Live Oak Blvd. since 1964. Plans anticipate a library more than double the size, about 1.7 miles away.

Construction costs are estimated at $7.3 million.

A public hearing on the proposed acquisition is scheduled for Sept. 27.
