Lafayette Library projects may be finished by Dec.

Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Renovations of the main library branch in downtown Lafayette and construction of a new library on La Neuville Road may be complete in time for both to open by year's end.

Sona Dombourian, public libraries director, tells The Advocate work at the three-story, main library is expected to be complete by June, but the process of moving furniture, equipment and the branch's extensive inventory to reopen for patrons will take a few months.

It's the first major update for the downtown branch since the building opened in 1973.

Dombourian says construction of the new East Regional branch began in October, but because of this winter's freezes, the foundation could not be poured and cured until February.

Despite the delay, she says construction could be complete by late August.
