Building design is complete!

The library is scheduled to close in late October. During construction, an interim library will operate three blocks south of the library at 1790 Douglas St. NE, the corner of 18th & Douglas.

The interim space will open on in mid-November. The interim space will be a 4,200-square-foot, modular unit.

The new Woodridge Library will open in 2015. (Yay!)

Also, there were questions about design for the rear windows; they will have shades, not louvers.
