BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The new Boca Raton Library at corner of NW 2nd Avenue and NW 4th Street is set to open later this year. 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.
