The expansion of the Friendswood Public Library will be complete by August, city of Friendswood officials said.

The project, which will add 6,000 square feet of space, began in April 2015 and experienced several delays because of heavy rain, officials said. The additional room will be used for meeting rooms, computer equipment and more books.

“The contractor anticipates being at substantial completion by the Aug. 1 [City] Council meeting,” said Patrick Donart, public works director and city engineer.

The expansion includes additional parking spaces and a children’s area inside, Donart said. The enhancements at the library cost $2.53 million.
