New Library in Farmington

NEWS

Farmington is excitedly drawing close to the finished construction of their new library. It’s been almost a year now since the library staff sat down with architects to plan out the perfect library, now plans have been set to have it finished this fall. The librarians and the community all submitted ideas for what they wanted in a new building: a storybook area for kids, a study lounge, conference rooms, and of course plenty of comfortable seating where patrons can curl up with a cup of coffee and enjoy a good book. Extra space, parking, and new technology promise to make the building a perfect place for kids, book-lovers, or those who just need some quiet time. Library Director Karen Roman wants the new library to become a downtown destination.
