Library officials announced Feb. 22 it was ready to invite guests to a 9 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony March 4 at its new 8000 Dallas Parkway location.
Construction on the project first broke ground in April 2021. The original opening date was set in fall 2022, but shipping shortages and other complications pushed it back.
After March 4, the wait is over.
An open house walk-through of the new building is scheduled to take place after the ceremony until 5 p.m. to give attendees a chance to see the long-awaited final product in person.
The open house will include previews of the new Tiny Town, MakerSpace and Kid’s Club areas, according to the announcement. Guests can also meet Rexy, the library’s resident T-Rex skeleton.
While the library will not be offering all of its usual services during the open house, guests can still get a library card, return materials and use the self checkout center, according to the announcement.
The library will be officially operational and reading-ready March 5. More information about the library can be found at its website.
