The library will continue to provide adult services, children services, and local history services, and will be adding enhanced teen and tween services to ensure all our citizens have a place to learn and grow. The library will have shared multi-purpose space for more programming opportunities, as well as a lot of natural light to ensure it is a welcoming and open space.
The project plans ensure that library service remain on the block for the entire duration of the project - so that there is continuity of services for the majority of the project. The downtown library would remain in its current location until the new building on the other side of the block is ready to move into. At that time, work would take place to move the library into the new facility, with only temporary closures for patrons.
