The temporary Central Library Express, 713 Austin St., opened to the public on Monday, May 1. The former Garland Women’s Activities Building is hosting services while the neighboring Central Library building is undergoing renovation.
The current site of the Central Library closed for renovation April 16. The work is expected to last 12 to 14 months.
Once complete, the Central Library will be back and better than ever with new technologies to include a video production studio and makerspace equipment. The renovated library will feature an exciting new place for children to learn through reading and hands-on play, more collaboration and study areas and new outdoor programming spaces.
During the renovation, patrons are encouraged to make use of the temporary Central Library Express and of the City’s three other branch libraries. Learn more at Library.GarlandTX.gov.
