On Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners approved the design for a new Hennepin County Library – Webber Park in the Camden Community of North Minneapolis. The design is for a free-standing 8,300-square-foot library building. It will be built on a 1.4-acre site located between 44th and 45th avenues north. The total budget for the project is $12 million, but costs are expected to be closer to $10 million. Plans for the new library include improved services, collaborative gathering spaces, an early literacy learning environment, a refreshed book collection, plus DVDs and CDs with world language resources, more public computers, improved work spaces, sustainable design, parking for cars and bicycles and an outdoor reading and gathering space.
