First Look: The Children’s Area of the New Library Addition

Progress. Every day, staff and partners for the construction project are moving forward to complete Phase one and get us ready for Phase 2.

We cannot possibly be more excited to reopen so that you can see and experience it in person, but for now, this will have to suffice.
