“There are some change orders in the works regarding the new library construction,” Lincoln Mayor Bud Kitchin said. “This could delay the expected completion date, but we are still hoping for December.”
Kitchin said the change orders include landscaping, exterior parking lot pole lighting and exterior digital signage.
“The interior painting is almost completed, and the library exterior is virtually complete as well,” he said. “The new library furniture is starting to arrive, and we are looking forward to starting on the landscaping and parking lot very soon.”
Officials said the new library is approximately 7,500 square feet. The one-story building includes 12 rooms of varying sizes, including the main library section which is approximately 55-by-65-feet.
Plans for the new library include enough shelving for 10 percent more books, audiobooks and DVDs, a separate teen section in addition to the children’s and adults sections and other programs or services to be determined at a later date.
