“Kids are so tech-savvy these days, we need to keep up,” Wayland said. “This is a good way to do that. Libraries are more than just books today. They're computers and Wi-Fi and our new Playaway devices.”
About the project
Southern Oaks was built in 1975. The $2.65 million renovation expanded its size from 16,000 to 20,000 square feet and doubled the number of computers available to visitors to 42. A drive-up book return was added along with renovated restrooms, among other improvements.
The renovation was paid for by a $1.8 million city bond issue passed in 2000. The Metropolitan Library System contributed an additional $850,000.
Since the library had been closed, a temporary branch was opened in the Almonte Shopping Center at 2914 SW 59. Mayor Mick Cornett said that branch will remain open to better serve the library system's patrons.
