Library closes today; new one is coming
TAMPA — The Robert W. Saunders Sr. Public Library at 1505 N Nebraska Ave. closes today as crews prepare to demolish it and construct a new library.
Expected to be complete in 2015, the new library will feature more than 26,000 square feet, a children's room, a community room for up to 350 and a walkway to the nearby B.T. Washington Elementary School.
Work on the $7,845,000 project is set to begin in January.
