Public Library kicks off Newport Branch project

Revitalization.  Redevelopment.  Renovation.   Three R’s that all point to a new beginning for the Market Street and Midlothian Boulevard area with construction of a new branch library. 

After several years of planning, the Library began in late November construction on a $3.6 million branch that will bring new life into the area designated as a key component of the Youngstown 2010 land-use plan.  Bids for this new branch came in approximately $702,000 under the original published amount of $4.3 million.  The branch is expected to be completed in 10 to 12 months….

The library’s design is a collaborative effort of Ronald Cornell Faniro, Architects, AIA Inc., of Youngstown, and their library design consultant Meehan Architects of Cleveland.  The general trades contractor is the Murphy Contracting Co.

“This building will undergo a dramatic change both externally and internally to prepare the structure for the new use.  It will literally be taken apart and put back together to suit the Library’s needs, create a new image for the facility and define this corner as a gateway to a re-emerging city.” Faniro said.
