One outdoor space will be a rooftop garden. According to the City’s website, it is planning to put a screen on the parking garage, adjacent to the rooftop space, for movie screenings and community events.

The location of the new building is on Liberty Avenue, about one block away from the Cty’s current library. The City unveiled its design of the library last month.

Construction on the new library is set to finish in 2023. The City will post construction updates on its website.
