Voters narrowly approved the $15 million building in 2004, and it opened its doors in December of 2006. The library grew with each move, both in size and in patrons served. The new building makes use of the latest energy saving materials and techniques, and was recognized last year as a "green" building by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Program.
"It's an incredible building, and our usage has increased dramatically since then," said Gutelius.
It is estimated the building's features and designs reaps $66,000 in energy savings annually.
