by ECT

On Tuesday, demolition began as the Brentwood Library was torn down as the city will be constructing a new $13.5 million library facility.

Construction on the new 20,000 square foot library is expected to be somewhere between 18-20 months. Upon completion, the City will have a new and modern library.

The new 20,000 square foot library will include 33 public computers, space for 80,000 items in the collection, a community room for larger programs, a conference room, group study rooms, outdoor seating in a landscaped courtyard and a café.

Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who watched the demolition began was excited for the future.

“After many many years its going to be the beginning of a great thing for citizens and everyone who desires higher education an opportunities with the knowledge that a library has to offer,” said Taylor. “its going to enhance our downtown, its a perfect fit for our downtown and our goals which I always wanted to accomplish for our downtown.”

In October, the Brentwood Library moved to a temporary home at the Arts and Crafts Room of the Community Center at 35 Oak Street.

The temporary library outlet will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays from 12 to 8 p.m. The outlet will be closed on the weekends.
