Construction has barely started on the new Forest Green Library in Lake Highlands, but another public library is making rapid progress in Vickery Meadow.

The $8 million project on Park Lane near Greenville Avenue will be an 18,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility with space for classes and community meetings. A youth center, funded by a $752,000 grant from the Crystal Charity Ball, will include STEM kits, gaming systems and coding classes. A children’s play area will be paid for using $254,000 in city park funds.

You can check out progress on the project here. The library is scheduled to open in 2021.

The Vickery Meadow Library is currently under construction on Park Lane near Greenville Avenue.
