Our community is growing and the Library must expand to serve the growth.
Eleven years after opening, demand for Bethany Library services in our rapidly growing community greatly exceeds the small branch’s capacity. Plans to move the branch to a larger space in the proposed Bethany Plaza development are postponed due to delays in the new project’s timeline.
With limited space, Bethany Library:
- Cannot offer enough programs to give the youngest readers a head start in reading
- Must restrict scheduling of story times that inspire learning and growth
- Can only offer limited teen programs despite soaring need for teen literacy programs
- Cannot provide programs and learning opportunities for adults
The result is an underserved community and missed opportunities for our residents to learn and connect.
