Construction of a new valley library is nearing the last few pages.
The Vigo County Public Library will soon open up the new and improved West Terre Haute branch.
The community will be thrilled to hear the new location will be five times bigger than the current West Terre Haute branch.
The building offers 5,000 square feet.
Of course books will soon line the shelves, but library officials say the branch will offer a lot more.
Features will include a kitchen, a meeting room, a conference room, and it’s very handicap accessible.
Holly Curtsinger, Public Services Coordinator of VCPL, said library staff was hoping to have the branch open by now, but they’re waiting on some unique items.
“A little behind schedule but I think the important piece is that most of the equipment and most of the furnishings in this building are custom design. Those things do have a longer lead time. It’s taken a little bit longer to accomplish our goals but I think the end result is great,” Curtsinger said.
Curtsinger said the new branch should be ready and operational by mid-February.
