Molino Branch Library Is Now Open
April 2, 2013
The new Molino Branch Library in the Molino Community Complex opened Monday morning.
The new library in the Molino Community Complex will be open 52 hours per week – from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
An opening reception gave the public an opportunity to meet the library staff, peruse the opening day collection, register for a library card and tour the facility.
The Molino Branch Library is located at 6450 Highway 95A (just south of Molino Road) in the Molino Community Complex, which opened back in October 2012.
The Molino Community Complex project included the conversion of the old Molino School in to a library, community center and museum. There was also a new 7,000 square foot facility constructed for the tax collector and property appraiser. The project was funded by local option sales tax monies.
