FORT MYERS, Fla. – The grand opening that was scheduled for the Downtown Library on October 26, will need to be rescheduled to a later date.

The above-average rainfall this summer has impacted the outdoor site work.

The exterior design of the library is a critical component to the overall library experience and is an integral part of the grand opening.

Current projections anticipate completion of the project in mid-November.

The Library grand opening will be rescheduled once Lee County Construction and Design can assure the completion date.
