KAYSVILLE — Ground breaking for the long-awaited Kaysville Branch Library is set for Monday, June 23 at 8 a.m. at 215 N. 100 East in Kaysville.
The branch will be built adjacent to Heritage Park, which has been developed on the old Clover Club potato chip plant.
Ascent Construction of Centerville has been selected to construct the branch. Opening is anticipated for mid to late 2015, library officials said.
The new branch will include 15,000 square feet, providing far more space than the current 6,000 square foot facility that originally was the Kaysville City Library.
Other features of the new building include increased public internet access, an auditorium that can seat about 180 people; conference rooms; a collection of items starting at 80,000 and space to house 100,000 items.
The library has been in the planning for several years. City officials have worked closely with their county counterparts in planning for the new facility.
