The opening of Frisco’s new public library has been delayed until March, according to a representative of the library.

The $62 million project broke ground in April 2021 and will be Frisco’s sole library facility once it opens. The opening of the new library has been delayed by about a month because of supply chain issues.

“Unfortunately due to the worldwide chip shortage and an assortment of other building components affected by the supply chain issues, Frisco Public Library’s opening has been extended to early March,” a representative of the library said.

The opening of the new facility has been delayed previously due to procurement issues. The previous library facility, located at 6101 Frisco Square Blvd., closed in December to begin the transition to the new facility.

The new library, located at 8000 Dallas Parkway, will be 157,000 square feet and will include a community event room, a quiet reading room, a kids reading space and a full-size female T-Rex skeleton, named Rexy by the Frisco community.
