The J. Frank Jungman Neighborhood Library, originally constructed in 1975, has been closed for two years undergoing a $6,788,000 major renovation. This project consisted of a complete renovation of the existing 18,530 square foot library. Only the foundation, concrete wall panels and roof structure were reused. The project includes new window wall and storefronts, new roof system, new mechanical, electrical and plumping systems, enhanced electrical power to service a large increase in computer services, new finishes, a new monument sign, and the re-configuration of internal spaces. The new facility contains a separate space for adult reading, a quiet room for adults, a children's reading room with space for toddlers, and a gaming area. Additionally, there is a separate area for teens and a meeting space for use by the public. The parking lot, landscaping, irrigation and site elements were also repaired or replaced as required.
Come on out on Thursday and you will be excited to see the new architecture, latest technology and enhanced spaces for all ages. Catch your first glimpse and experience the new and innovative library, while enjoying a mini taste of Westheimer with food and beverages provided by your favorite, local restaurants. Spcial thanks to our local business sponsors: Cliff's Old fashioned Hamburgers, Beck's Prime, Dish Society, River Oaks Plant House, Starbucks and Minuti Coffee.
Council Member Travis will be in attendance to welcome patrons to the new Jungman Library and hopes to see you there.
