NEW McKenney Library Updates

Our wonderful McKenney community is finally getting a new library!

As you know, the McKenney Library has been in its current location for years in a shared building. We love our little library, but it's not without problems! The NEW McKenney Library will be ADA compliant, have three times the amount of room for books, and space to support more programming and events. We are really excited about this new space and we hope you are too! You can read more about our new building by clicking here!

This page is where you will be able to find news and updates on how the new library is coming along, and any announcements that ARLS has to pass along regarding it's completion. So stay tuned!

Bucket Brigade
As we prepare for the move, we wonder: what one book would you give the honor of being first to be shelved in the new library? Post your choice on our Facebook page and let us know! We are planning to do a Bucket Brigade of the first book all the way from the current McKenney library to the new one in honor of its opening!
