Groundbreaking ceremonies scheduled for public libraries in Parma

August 18, 2012 by  

Groundbreaking events for two libraries in Parma will be held by the Cuyahoga County Public Library system on Tuesday, August 28.

Each of the projects is a part of the county’s master plan for the public library system, which is the largest and most involved building improvement plan in the library system’s nearly nine decade history. The library’s master plan includes renovation, relocation, and construction projects in an effort to reduce long-term costs of operation. This plan will allow the libraries to operate without extra funds provided by local taxpayers.

Special groundbreaking ceremonies and other community events may use banner printing to commemorate the occasion. Poster or flyer printing may also be used to announce the groundbreaking ceremony. Additionally, brochure printers might be used when public libraries or other community facilities make major renovations and construction to provide citizens with information about the project.

The first groundbreaking ceremony will occur at around 11:20 am at the new branch at 6996 Powers Boulevard. This new facility will replace the Parma-Ridge and Parma-South branches and will measure 42,000 square feet. The new building is estimated to be completed by the fall of 2013.

Those in attendance, including invited guests and library officials, will travel to the second groundbreaking event on Lolley the Trolley. Lolley will take the guests to 2121 Snow Road, where the groundbreaking ceremony for a 30,000 square foot addition to the Parma-Snow branch is scheduled to start at 11:40 am. Construction of this addition is also expected to be complete in the fall of 2013.
