New Downtown Library: Construction is moving along!

If you haven’t driven by City Hall in Downtown Arlington recently, you might not have noticed that the construction of the new library is picking up pace. The concrete foundation is down and you can see that some piers are already shooting up into the sky!

We are thrilled to share that changes are underway as we begin to build our new George W. Hawkes Downtown Library and new City Council chambers.

You can learn more about what the new Downtown Library will be like here, and you can support the capital campaign that’s securing the furniture, fixtures, and technology for the building by donating or buying a Dreams Begin Here baseball-style shirt.

Check out these shots below to see what’s taking shape, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay up-to-date with all the news about the new library and more!
