Winter Park Library

Seven years after the idea was first floated, Winter Park's brand-new library is finally opening this weekend. A ceremonial ribbon-cutting and community open house will start at the new library on December 11 at 9 a.m.

“After seven years of meticulous planning, budgeting, imagining, creating, designing and building, we are thrilled to celebrate the grand opening with our residents, partners and guests,” City Manager Randy Knight said in a statement.

Following the ribbon-cutting, there will be a ceremonial transfer of books leading the public into the new library. The open house will include live music, outdoor games, character appearances, storytelling hour and a scavenger hunt.

The library will begin normal operation on Monday, Dec. 13, at 9 a.m.
