Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) and Humphries Poli Architects are co-hosting two community meetings to seek input on the design of a new library in Edgewater. JCLP is partnering with the City of Edgewater to put a 10,000-square-foot library in the new Edgewater Civic Center, opening next fall.

At the meetings, representatives from Humphries Poli Architects will present initial design concepts using a highly interactive presentation that invites resident input.

The first meeting is Thursday, Sept. 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Happy Leaf Kombucha, 5700 W. 25th Ave., Edgewater. The second takes place Saturday, Sept. 30, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Edgewater Recreation Room, 5845 W. 25th Ave., Edgewater.
