New Library has Grand Opening Saturday

The new Ramsey County Library held its grand opening in Maplewood on Saturday. The brand new $7.9 million facility has something for people of every age.

The 31,000 square foot library is host to a teen area, featuring booths for group work, and a child-friendly area where kids can gather for book readings.

There are 61 computers available for public use to meet the needs of internet and library searches. The entire facility is also wireless internet equipped, so patrons can bring their personal laptops.

Grand opening attendees were also able to treat themselves to a cup of coffee or dessert pastry at Cafe Cravings, located in the library. The original Cafe Cravings was opened in 1995 in White Bear Lake, and their new cafe provided free samples.
