East End Library was built in 1965, and this is the first renovation of the building. The City’s capital budget funded the project, with $1.1 million, replacing all the lighting, windows, carpet, furniture, fixtures, equipment and paint, as well as doing exterior improvements. Located at 1200 North 25th St., the branch is again open to the public.
