 Shotwell Remodeling Floorplan

The Tony Shotwell Branch Library is closed through early 2018. The Shotwell Library is being expanded and renovated to better meet the needs of customers, defining areas for children, teens and adults, and creating higher visibility within the Shotwell Recreation center.  Here is the floorplan, and some of the colors and textures you'll see once we reopen.

With movable book stacks, a central customer service counter, more functional staff area, and new children’s

 programming space, the larger library will still offer computers, gaming, books for all ages, graphic novels, a Spanish collection and DVDs in an updated, organized layout. Pardon our closure and dust as your library system continually strives to be relentlessly relevant to our Grand Prairie community.

Many programs will continue during construction, taking place in a Shotwell Center program room. Teen Time will continue to meet each week, as well as children’s programs like Book Babies, Toddler Time, Kinder Ready, and Read Play Learn. For dates and timesl, see our Fall 2017 Event Guide. Your library card is also valid at both other Grand Prairie libraries, and can access ebooks, eaudiobooks, movies, comics and more from our eBranch.
