Q: I drove by a sign advertising a new Monticello branch in western Shawnee. When will that be done?
The long-awaited Monticello Library, to be located in Western Shawnee, is at last underway. During the next year, crews will be hard at work on the large and lively Kids area, up-to-date technology allowing students to learn and adults to thrive, reconfigurable spaces to meet changing community needs, and much more. Monticello Library is expected to open in Fall 2018.
While we’re waiting, you can take a gander at what the Monticello Library will look like inside and out. Your tour is narrated by none other than County Librarian Sean Casserly. In this wonderful animated flythrough, you'll see all kinds of new features!
