TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute a permit with the Long Beach Public Library Foundation, a California nonprofit public benefit corporation, for use of space in the Billie Jean King (BJK) Main Library, for a period of five years, with the option to renew for two additional one-year periods, at the discretion of the City Manager.

DISCUSSION
The Long Beach Public Library Foundation (Foundation), a nonprofit corporation, was created in 1996 to provide funding for services and programs beyond what is provided by the General Fund for the Department of Library Services. Since the inception of the Foundation, the Department has received support for 12 Family Learning Centers, the Learning Lab at Michelle Obama Library, the Studio at BJK Main Library, book and material resources, and special programming for youth. The support that the Foundation provides has assisted the Department tremendously in providing services and materials to library users. The success of the Family Learning Centers is due to the support of the Foundation and its goals to promote literacy and enhance opportunities for the entire community.

To assist the Foundation in fulfilling its goals, the Department is requesting that the City Council approve a permit for use of office space in the BJK Main Library by the Foundation. The Foundation will continue to pay for telephone and internet service and will provide insurance coverage, as they did at the old Main Library space. The use of space by the Foundation is beneficial as it allows staff in the Department to work closely with the Foundation, particularly on issues regarding the Family Learning Centers, grant applications, and related issues.

The proposed permit for use of space contains the following major provisions:

· Address: 200 West Broadway, Long Beach (approximately 735 square feet (SF).
· Length of term: Five years, with the option to renew for two additional one-year periods.
· Rent:...
