SEGUIN, BEXAR COUNTY - The Seguin Public Library has celebrated the groundbreaking that kicks off an $11 million, 43,330-sf project officials expect to have completed by the summer 2016.

The new building, located off West Nolte St. just west of Walnut Creek, replaces the edifice built at 707 East College St. in the 1960s.

The building is designed for a silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, which is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability.

The building will be adaptable for many generations of technology — built in such a way to enable accommodation of the latest and greatest technology, according to Byrne Construction, the developer of the project.

Seguin Mayor Don Keil thinks the striking and symbolic new structure, which embraces the future while situated beside the center of the city’s historic downtown, will do even more than that.
