In a statement issued this morning, The City of Boca Raton says that drywall has been installed on approximately 80 percent of the build and the sheet metal ductwork is being wrapped with thermal insulation.
The library will be a whopping 42,000 square feet and will replace the current library which opened more than a half century ago.
Residents in Boca Raton approved a $19.8-million bond back in March of 2003 to construct two new libraries. The Spanish River Library opened in January of 2008.
