A new library, which will be located on the northwest corner of Mainstreet and Pine Drive, is being built and the event aims to engage the public as the new library comes together.
“We’re very excited to introduce our town’s new library and planned site amenities to the community with this fun event,” Parker Mayor Mike Waid said in a release. “It’s a great opportunity to help people visualize not only the building and park, but the benefits they will provide for generations to come.”
Kids in attendance will enjoy story time, snacks and the opportunity to dig for special gifts before mayor Waid escorts them to the new library site where they can have their picture taken with a large construction vehicle, the release said.
Graphics and diagrams of the proposed Parker Library, as well as the planned surrounding park area, will be on display, and local dignitaries will share a few words before the story time portion commences.
The Tuesday event starts at 10:30 a.m. For more information, go to douglascountylibraries.org.
