Expansion and Renovation Project Updates
Thank you to everyone who attended or watched the live broadcast of our Groundbreaking Ceremony on July 21! We are all very excited to begin the next chapter of our history and grateful for the support of our incredible community.
In late June, Vivid Flight Media visited the library for a pre-construction fly-through of the building! This video is the “before” and we’ll have Vivid Flight Media back in the spring for an “after” fly-through, so stay tuned!

Our parking lot will remain accessible for patrons and staff to park vehicles, but the parking lot entrance to the building and the outdoor book drops will no longer be available beginning Friday, July 16.
Please use the Spring Street entrance and book drop. Books can also be returned inside at the Circulation desk. The building will remain open to the public during our regular business hours!
If you’ve been in the library recently, you may have noticed that we’ve been boxing up books as part of the preparation for our expansion and renovation project. Many books will remain on the shelves throughout the project, but in order to make room for the construction, some books will be moved into storage.
Don’t worry, all of the books that we’ll be putting into storage for the duration of the project will all be back on the shelves come next spring, when the building is completed! In the meantime, if there is a book you would like that isn’t on the shelf, please check with our 2nd floor Reference staff. We may be able to order the book for you!
In case you missed it, our Library Administrator Don Dovala sat down with The Chronicle-Telegram’s Jason Hawk earlier this month to talk about the book storage and to give the latest updates on our expansion and renovation project. Check out the article here.
