Although a decade away, this plan includes a new HCLS Central Branch and Business/Arts Education Center. We are imagining one of the world's most beautiful, iconic libraries. We envision an education center that creates intellectual, interactive and enlightening experiences for all ages, reflected through museum-quality exhibits and sculptures, as well as creative classes and performances. The visual exhibits, remarkable architecture, auditorium and ample gathering spaces will bring people together and make the new branch a focal point for the new downtown. While a sizable investment will be required, this new branch represents a wise investment in education, ensuring a flourishing future for generations to come.
