MidPointe Library Liberty Updates
The Library hosted two community open houses on March 29 and 30 at the Lakota Family YMCA to share updates on the plans for the new MidPointe Library Liberty location.
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. 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.
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.
