Ribbon cutting ceremony planned for Tavares Public Library expansion
Lake County and the City of Tavares will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the expansion of the Tavares Public Library. The event will take place at the library, located at 314 N New Hampshire Ave. in Tavares on Thursday, Jan 6 at 3 p.m. The free event is open to the public and will include a ribbon-cutting, presentations, refreshments, and live music.
The one-story library building received a new 2,594 square foot addition, which will serve the residents of Tavares and Lake County. The expansion is a multipurpose space that includes a section for teens, accommodations for individual and group gatherings, and a programming and meeting area with interactive technology for collaboration.
“In the new Tavares Public Library Expansion, library visitors can sit, read, relax, socialize, and plugin all at the Library,” said Rebecca Campbell, library director for the Tavares Public Library. “The Tavares Public Library is excited and honored to fill this vital role in both Tavares and Lake County, and we are thankful for the funding provided by the Lake County Library Impact Fees.”
“The Tavares Public Library Expansion is a reflection of the community,” said George Taylor, director of the Lake County Library System. “The new space includes a dedicated area for teen patrons who already use the library and increased meeting and programming space for the community at large.”
