Each week that progress continues on the new Clifton Branch Library, it begins to look a little more like the vision we have been working toward over the past five years.
February saw the new building continue to take shape with exterior walls and, in the last week of February, FCI Constructors began installing the roof. Inside the building, plumbing and electrical work have also begun, along with installation of fire sprinklers and insulation. The framework of interior walls offers a glimpse of how the space inside the library will look when it’s finished.
Construction is still very close to the original schedule, and we are optimistic that construction will be complete in August or September 2023; we hope to celebrate the grand opening of the new Clifton Branch in October.
The new Clifton Branch, 3270 D ½ Road, will be approximately three times the size of the current library serving Clifton. The $11.5 million project is being funded by the Mesa County Public Library District and a Mesa County Libraries Foundation capital campaign.
