Main Library Planning Progresses . . .

November 3, 2008


Over the past few months, Library and County Engineering staff worked with architects and community members to craft a program plan for the renovation of the Main Library.  We are seeking additional input from the Board of Trustees, County Administration, and County Commissioners. When finalized, the program plan will form the basis of a design and construction project to complete a renaissance of regional library services that began a decade ago.
