Dignitaries and volunteers from the City of Castle Pines and the surrounding areas gathered last month to break ground on what will soon be a new, free-standing, state-of-the-art library in the center of town.
The event took place at Village Square Lane, where the new building will soon stand and only a few hundred feet from where the existing library is located. The event featured remarks from Bob Pasicznyuk, Director of Douglas County Libraries and Castle Pines Mayor Jeff Huff. Lone Tree Library Manager Aspen Walker read a book called “Our Library,” a children’s story about the importance of a library to a community.
The groundbreaking brings the community of Castle Pines one step closer to having its own library, an endeavor volunteers and government leaders have championed for nearly a decade.
“This library is a great testament to what can be done when a community has vision and a common goal,” said Huff.
Completion of the library is slated for late fall 2015 or early winter 2016.
