Taking shape

The new addition being built onto the Gutekunst Public Library in State Center will nearly double the size of the structure, and provide more space for patrons to read, write or research.

AT LEFT: The exterior of the Gutekunst Public Library addition will match the current structure’s red-brick appearance. Library Director Mara Edler said the project is expected to be finished around the end of January of 2018.
