The City of El Paso Departments of Capital Improvement and Public Libraries are inviting residents to a workshop to share their thoughts on the renovation concepts for the Main Library in downtown.
The improvements are part of the first phase of a project to deliver on the voter-approved Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC), a signature project of the 2012 Quality of life Bond program.
“All of the library’s existing services such as Teen Town, Adult Education Spaces, Children’s Library, Border Heritage will all be retained or enhanced under the library renovation,” city officials shared via a news release. “The reconfiguration and reprogramming of some of the existing library spaces will be necessary as part of this renovation project.”
The project is currently under design and includes renovations to approximately 60,000 square feet of the existing library.
