Northside Library Project
Proposed Library Schematic
The Northside Library project will provide a permanent location for the Northside Library at 705 Rio Road (former Phillips Building) and also will provide long-term County warehouse/ storage space at a significant cost savings to the County. The new facility, involving repurposing of an existing building, will provide approximately 30,000 square feet of library space, and over 20,000 square feet of warehouse space. Construction began in early 2014 with completion currently scheduled for early 2015.
