After spending a $5 million budget granted as a renovation fund, Plano’s Davis Library is finally ready to accept Plano citizens and accommodate them according to a Dallas Morning News article from May 16 which reports,
“Plano’s Davis Library has reopened following a $5.3 million renovation project that began in April 2021.
The library reopened on May 15, according to an announcement by the city.
The project doubled the size of the children’s space and added a dedicated children’s room. Also included are new study rooms and meeting places for students and the general public.
In addition, Plano’s Parks and Recreation department improved landscaping at the library,replacing dead or diseased trees with Eastern Red Cedar and Arizona Cypress trees.”
To top off their opening which was earlier than planned and expected, Davis Library will already be offering different summer programs as they have partnered with different organizations for the execution of these programs according to a Plano Magazine article from May 12. They say,
Davis Library will kick off its summer program from 12 to 2 p.m., Saturday, June 4. The theme is Discover Your World, and children will get stamps in their library passport for each activity or program they participate in, including 3D printing, art, dinosaurs, drawing, finance, history, poetry and more.
Davis will also host a Movie and Video Games program, where the Plano Symphony Orchestra will turn movie and video game tunes to life at 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 23 and a Mad Science – Amazing Oceans program where participants will dive into the science of sea life at 2 p.m., Thursday, July 21.
Davis Library is named to honor the first library director of the city, Maribelle M. Davis, who dedicated her 30 years to the city.
