Community members joined library staff and board members as they shoveled dirt during the breaking ground ceremony today 3/22.

The library will undergo a 3 million dollar expansion project geared toward bringing more technology to the area. The beginning of phase one will start this Friday 3/25 forcing the library to shut its doors for two to four weeks.

"We've, we're trying to figure out what we wanted to do and he told us to think big so we did," said Library Director Nancy Tillinghast.

The total project's expected completion date is sometime in 2012.

The library, located on North Madison Street, will close this Friday for up to 4 weeks.

Staff members said a total of eight thousand square feet will be added to the sides of the library. This Friday starts the beginning of Phase One, leaving two more phases to go.

Library staff said thousands of residents visit the library daily.

"The contractor needs about a week - week in a half to build a wall inside the library so they can separate them and build their fencing outside," said Library Director Nancy Tillinghast.

There are several other branch libraries residents can visit over the next few weeks.
