Now open! This branch is sited on approximately 5 acres, and with the existing Southport Branch, will provide additional Library access to the growing Perry Township community. Project Architect: Schmidt Associates
The new 25,000-square-foot branch includes:
"I am excited to get involved in the West Perry Community and to get to know our patrons and community partners. I am anxious to see the interior after all the new furniture, fixtures and shelving have been put in place. I think it will be amazing to work in a building with so much space and light."
~ Peggy Wehr, Manager
"I'm most excited about serving a new community! I'm also excited to have a special area for teens, so they can feel more welcome in the library and take advantage of all the cool services we have! I'm also excited for our outdoor space. I'm just excited about everything."
~ Shelby Graam, Children's Librarian
"I am most excited about a brand new building with many new items. I am also excited about providing service for a new neighborhood and patrons who previously had to travel much farther to go to the library. Perhaps we will get patrons who otherwise would not make the effort to go and they will realize what they have been missing!"
~ Kathy Cobb, Library Assistant
"I'm excited for a bright and shiny new branch in a new area and the ability to better serve a new clientele, as there may be patrons sho haven't been to the library yet because they don't live close enough to one, in that area."
~ Tony Van Pelt, Library Assistant
