"The repurposing of a rocket factory into a library is a wonderful metaphor," Library Director Shelley Holley said at the ceremony. "After all, rockets store fuel to power the exploration of the stars. Libraries store energy that fuels the imagination. So libraries are critical to a high-quality of life in our community."
Designs for the library have already garnered awards and praise. Mayor Jeff Cheney called the facility project the biggest Frisco has ever taken on.
"This facility is going to be the heart of Grand Park; it's going to be right in City Hall's shadow," he said. "It's going to be an incredible project."
Construction is slated to be complete next summer.
