Basic facts on the size, costs, shared spaces and architects is the first step in identifying new or renovated libraries to visit and/or to contact in order to learn more about the project. This Index provides access to data on recent public library building projects including new construction, renovations and additions. The records collected to date can be browsed using the links in the left sidebar. E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
