Round Rock, Texas – City Government
Approximately 15 months to go!!! Construction on Round Rocks new library is moving right along and has recently gone vertical! Its almost surreal to see a crane take over the skyline in our downtown isnt it?! 

The library is the last major project from a series of bonds approved by voters in 2013 and has an anticipated completion date of January 2023. The design includes a 66,000 square foot, three story building with a 300-space parking garage that will serve the library as well as the downtown area.

With additional space and modernized features, the library will expand its core services with ambitious programming that takes advantage of advanced technology. This will be offered with outdoor garden spaces, flexible conference rooms and training and educational labs. Total cost of construction will be $29.8 million, including the garage portion of the project that will be funded through the City’s Type B sales tax revenues. 

Previous to the COVID-19 pandemic, the library was averaging more than 30,000 visitors on a monthly basis. The City of Round Rock expects to maintain ownership of the current library building at this time.

Can't wait until our first Star Wars Reads and other events once it's completed.

I love the foresight in adding a parking garage! Lovely.

I really hope they will have tutoring spaces available

It’s looking amazing! Cannot wait!

Sing library go up is sweet seeing a crane in a nice downtown is never sweet

Round Rock, Texas - City Government, since this is the "last major project" of that bond package, as you stated, is the completion or start of(for that matter) trail segments that were promised and continue to have not be started, not deemed to be major projects? I voted yes to those bonds but still waiting for the Lake Creek Trail project, from Round Rock West to Centennial Plaza. The City website used to say 2017, then as said 2019, then I was told it was delayed due to creek infrastructure issues. I don't think I would have voted for that bond had I known how long the City would take. The website still says start of construction is spring of 2020. Should it really take almost 9 years to make what is essentially a sidewalk?

Ooooh that's what that is. Cool! Was wondering what was getting built.

Mary Pennington… since we were talking about this the other day. 🙂

So cool! Where is it? New to the area 🙋‍♀️

It’s Austin Aeronauts Hot Air Balloons that launch from there occasionally depending on the weather & their clients.

No but I have seen it in Albuquerque at balloon Fiesta and it's beautiful

Truly is. We live near by and have watched for years.

If you don’t know those roadway names then you’re not familiar enough with the area…..atleast those road names are better than when APD just gives a rough address for their incidents on IH35

What was a pedestrian doing on I-35???

I have seen many pedestrians try running across. They need a pedestrian bridge!

Auto-Fatality? Was someone walking on the hwy? 🙏🏿

Would be nice to have a Map Link with these so it's not a puzzle to figure out, especially when the posting entity uses a lesser known name for a major roadway.

So sad.

Oh my goodness how incredibly sad. Praying for all involved.

Translation: Between Old Settlers Parkway and Hwy 79 (aka 'Palm Valley Blvd.")
