The Frisco Public Library has a brand new book and a host of bigger and better features.
The Frisco Public Library opened its doors this past weekend with lines of people waiting to look inside. City officials and representatives participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8000 Dallas Parkway as well as an open house preview of the new interior and layout.
Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney, alongside Deputy City Manager Henry Hill and Frisco Public Library Director Shelley Holley, gave exuberant speeches to introduce the local community to the new library.
Formerly a rocket factory, the new library now boasts nearly three times the former space with a full-size female T-Rex skeleton model at 20 feet tall, along with a story room and computer lab.
“At the library’s groundbreaking, we said how fitting it is to repurpose a rocket factory into a library,” Frisco Public Library Director Shelley Holley said. “After all, rockets store the fuel to power the exploration of the stars and libraries store the fuel to inspire the imagination, power the intellect and spark curiosity.”
