We want to say thanks to everyone who has helped us realize this vision so far!

Projects like this don’t happen overnight or with just a few people contributing. Back in 2015, our long-range plan called for us to look at how our library spaces could best serve the community. In 2018, after many internal discussions, we reached out to the community. Over the course of many months, we talked with stakeholders from every part of the community. Our friends at Enberg Anderson Architects took the input we received and helped us craft a vision to move forward with.


Today, thanks to all the community support we have received we are bringing that vision into reality.
