South side Abilene library opening pushed back to Fall


ABILENE, Texas - The opening date for the south side Abilene library's new location in the Mall of Abilene has again been pushed back.

City librarian Lori Grumet said the original timeline with a Spring opening was very ambitious. She said that for a project of this scale, they are making good time.

The construction is projected to be done around the end of September.

After the construction is completed, staff will start transferring the books and other materials into their new home. Grumet said will take several weeks.
