About the building

This new library branch will be the first of its kind in the city, a facility dedicated specifically to area families – services, programs, books, movies and music that meets the needs of children, teens, and their parents.

The 8,000-square-foot building will be located in east Fort Worth, along East Lancaster Avenue. Construction is expected to be completed by 2020, with funding for the building coming from the 2014 Bond Program.
