Big Plans for Bentonville Library

NWA Daily

Is bigger better? A recent needs assessment for the Bentonville Library shows a much larger plan beyond what was approved by voters last month.

  • Refresh: Voters ok'd the city’s $266 million bond plan for capital projects and bond refinancing. “In May, a decision will be made about how the library will go forward,” in regards to a greater expansion said Director Hadi Dudley.
  • So how big are we talking? The library suggested a site for outdoor programming with gardens, outdoor reading rooms, play areas, and walking paths. Inside, additional study rooms. The report also shows a need for a meeting space of up to 300 people.

Curious about what all is in the report, you can read it HERE.
