NORTH LIBERTY (KWWL) -
A new and improved library is open in North Liberty.
Sunday, officials held the ribbon cutting for the library expansion, which was open throughout construction. The larger space includes a teen lounge, children's story time area, meeting rooms, and comfortable seats.
The North Liberty library is attached to the community center. Now the library is three times the size it used to be.
"It's a gathering place," said Dee Crowner, Library Director. "It's a place for everybody, you know, we offer lots of different services, not just books."
The expansion has been in the works for about five years and cost $3.4 million. Officials have plans to expand the library again in about ten years as the city grows.
