Steel beams are going up on the new $10 million, 39,000-plus square foot Bossier Parish Library System central branch location and expanded history center at the corner of Beckett St. and City Hall Dr.
Heather McEntee, director of the parish library system, said the new central library complex will be one of the finest facilities anywhere. Available in the new facility will be creative spaces for individuals who want to stretch their imaginations, a film and music studio, a separate teen area and larger children’s areas.
One feature of the new central complex will be an expanded history center that will focus on the colorful, impactful history of Bossier Parish with more in-depth features on people, places and events that have influenced the area.
