New Library Ahead of Schedule

by July 27, 2009 • 4 comments

img_0158Panama City Beach has been itching to get into its new, state of the art library and the wait may be shorter than expected.

If you’ve ventured down Hutchison Blvd. you’ve noticed that in a short period of time, the entire frame of the building is erect, giving gawkers the full scope of what the new facility will look like. And that’s not all. Already the plumbing and sewage are in place and the groundwork for the electrical is ready as well.

Groundbreaking on the new library was in April with a completion date set tentatively for February 2010. At this pace, however, that date could be moved up. In fact, Charles Lewis, Director of Construction Operations at the Construct Two Group called that tentative date “more than enough time.”

On Tuesday plans to set the walls are in place. After speaking with an onsite worker, I learned that the once the walls are up the process will accelerate making the date even sooner still. For those who are excited about the new library, you can start practicing your library card picture poses.

Who is specifying the furniture for the library? Does anyone have a name?

When will the middle beach branch be open? I would like to return some books and browse the new branch.
