MidPointe Library Liberty Updates
Join us for a Community Open House to share details and architectural plans for the NEW MidPointe Library Liberty and meet Library staff on Wednesday, March 29 and Thursday, March 30, 5:30-8:00 PM at the Lakota Family YMCA located at 6703 Yankee Road, Liberty Township (across from the NEW MidPointe Library Liberty property).
Plans for a new public library are in the works for Liberty Township. The MidPointe Library System has contracted with LWC Incorporated on design work for a new branch with a tentative opening date of fall 2024. MidPointe purchased the land for the new building, located at 6716 Yankee Road, at the end of 2021.
The new location will feature:
- 21,000 square feet constructed, holding more than 35,000 library materials and collections
- Featuring designated spaces for youth, teen, and adult patrons.
- Unique program and play spaces for youth
- Numerous meeting spaces, including a large community room and multiple conference/study rooms
- Quiet reading area with fireplace
- Drive up book return
- Lobby vestibule with extended hours and a “hold locker” pickup option.
Advertising the public project will begin March 18, 2023. Bids will be due and opened by MidPointe Library April 14, 2023. Pending Board, legal, and financial review, a winning bid may be selected in April 2023 with construction starting as early as late May 2023.
MidPointe opened their original Liberty Township branch in November 2018. The library, located on the second floor of The Foundry at Liberty Center, is 3,671 square feet and offers a collection of 5,000 items. Despite its limited size, the branch welcomes over 8,000 patrons and circulates over 13,000 items a month.
