Included in the series of 2013 bonds that were approved by Round Rock voters, the library is a major project of the city and is expected to be completed in January 2023.
The new library will be directly north of the existing Round Rock Public Library’s location at 216 E. Main St. The three-story, 66,000-square-foot building will have a 300-space parking garage that will serve library visitors as well as the downtown area.
Construction costs for the new library total $29.8 million and include the garage. The project will be paid for with sales tax revenue.
In addition to the new structure, the Round Rock Public Library will expand core services with programming in its outdoor garden spaces, flexible conference rooms as well as training and educational labs.
