New library open in Independence

INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -- After two years of planning and construction, the Independence Public Library is finally complete.  The $3.2 million library held a grand opening and open house Sunday in Independence.

Along with checking out the new building, and the additional room for books, there were plenty of activities for kids and adults.  Community support helped the library move out of its 113 year home and into its new digs.

"Hundreds have helped us, monetarily and with thier time and labor.  It's truly been a labor of love," said library board member Jacquie McTaggert.

The new library features seven times as much space as the previous library.
