Building Libraries to Inspire Reading, Share Resources and Connect People

With the new Driving Park and Whitehall branches open to the public, we’ve shown the community our vision for a 21st century library. But we’re not done. Main Library will reopen June 25, 2016 after undergoing major renovations, and seven more branches are being transformed as well.
