Ribbon Cutting to
Commemorate the New Library Expansion!
It has been quite the project! The construction is nearly
done, and we're inviting you to our Ribbon
Cutting Ceremony on Monday,
June 4, at 1:00pm.The 21-month construction has added 23,681
total square feet to the library building, and will allow us to provide
additional services and programs for the community!
On the first floor of the expansion, we now have the River
Room, a library program space that will accommodate over 200
seats! We're excited for the opportunity to expand our programs! There is
also a larger space for the Friends of the Library's Lilian
Much of the second floor expansion is dedicated to
children, including interactive learning stations! The expansion has also
allowed us to build a larger teen space, and much larger Youth
Program Room, where we will host many programs for babies,
toddlers, kids, and teens!
Thank you for your
while we built this new addition!
We can't wait for you to visit your new library!
