(Belcamp, Maryland – August 28, 2013) A community meeting is planned to seek ideas and input from the public on the new Havre de Grace branch of Harford County Public Library. Led by the building design team, the meeting will take place at the Havre de Grace Activity Center at 351 Lewis Lane on Wednesday, September 4 at 7:00 pm.
The planned rebuild of the Havre de Grace Library includes expanding the size of the current location from 8,400 to about 15,000 square feet and growing from one to two stories. The groundbreaking will take place in late fall of 2014 if everything goes according to plan.
