On May 5, 1998 voters approved a $17.6 million bond issue and an increased millage rate of .85 in order to build a new library, renovate downtown and purchase a new bookmobile. Ground was broken on the new facility in April 2000 with construction continuing through 2001. The Whittaker Road facility, designed by David Milling and Associates, was opened to great acclaim in January of 2002. The facility boasts 60,000 square feet, over 250,000 titles, 197 places to sit, and 231 parking places.
