SUGAR GROVEâ€”The outside of the new Sugar Grove Public Library building is nearly finished.
On Tuesday, the project manager from Cordogan, Clark & Associates, Inc., Therese Thompson, and Sugar Grove Library circulation services manager Michelle Drawz went through the final details on the building’s interior.
One could almost visualize a library patron curled up with a good book near the fireplace in the quiet room, a group of high school students discussing a shared project in a study room, wide-eyed children listening to a story in a special room just for them, or two friends taking a moment for a cup of coffee in the Book Nook Cafe.
Thompson shared the credit for the amenities the building offers with the community. She said there was a great deal of public input about what residents wanted in a new library, as well as feedback from the library staff.
â€œThis building is fantastic,â€ Drawz said. â€œYou could fit four of our old libraries in here.â€
The 27,430-square-foot building, located at Municipal Drive and Snow Street, replaces the old 6,000 square-foot library at Main and Snow streets.
