Warmack Library to remodel, expand
The Grand Prairie Library System remodeled its Main Library in the Winter-Spring of 2016, and will begin remodeling its Shotwell Library in August this year. Next year, the System will begin a major expansion and remodeling project of its southernmost branch, the Betty Warmack Library.
Built in 2001, the 10,000 square foot Warmack Library was named for long-time library supporter Betty Warmack, who over the years has served with the Friends of the Library, the Library Foundation, and Library Board.
As its popularity with visitors has grown over the years, the Library’s current meeting room space has become inadequate for programming demands. Popular programs often overflow into the body of the library, bringing noise and distractions to readers.
Construction will begin by the end of 2017, and will continue for approximately 12 months. The Warmack Library will stay open for the first nine months of construction, then close to the public for the final three months.
The Warmack Library will grow by 65%, adding 6,500 square feet. The expansion project will result in two program rooms, as well as 4 study rooms. The children’s and adults’ areas will expand, and a new teen area (with gaming space) will be created.
The Warmack Library is located at 760 Bardin Rd. 972-237-5770. Visit us online at www.gptx.org/library
