Leaders with the Lawrence Public Library will host a series of public meetings as they work to convince city commissioners to place a library expansion project on the November ballot.
The library’s board of directors will seek public input on what should be included in a future expansion project at the following meetings:
• 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Lawrence Visitors Center, 402 N. Second St.
• 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Holcom Park Recreation Center, 2700 W. 26th St.
• 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. May 17, Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt.
The library has proposed an $18 million expansion that would include a children’s room, meeting space, additional room for public computers and a parking structure that would add about 50 parking spaces to the area.
Library board members have asked city commissioners to place the project on the November ballot for voter approval. Commissioners are expected to make a decision on that request in June.
