Temporary site opened for Fairwood Library during construction
The temporary site for the Fairwood Library is now open, while the branch gets an expansion to 20,000 square feet.
The temporary site is located at 14238 S.E. 176th St. and has materials for pick up, computer access, a small browsing collection and the library catalog.
Construction started on the Fairwood Library this week. The newly remodeled location will be expanded by 5,000 square feet. The new design will have additional rooms, an enlarged children’s area and meeting spaces. There will be new skylights, to allow better visibility in and out of the building.
Fairwood will also get automated materials for handling book returns, which the library did not have previously.
The original library was built in the 1980s.
Construction is expected to last one year, with completion expected in fall 2014.
