AUSTIN - The new 200,000-sf multimillion dollar library project is underway. The new limestone and glass building is expected to open in 2016, east of the Seaholm Power Plant on Cesar Chavez.

The library is expected to cost $120 million, including money to build it, as well as outfit it with furniture, computers and new books and library materials. Most of the money will come from a 2006, voter-approved bond package.

City of Austin Library Director Brenda Branch said, "This new central library is designed on the library for the future model. It will be characterized by state-of-the-art technologies, gathering spaces of all sizes."
