Southdale Library building project

New construction

Projected completion: 2022

About the project

Southdale Library will be rebuilt either on the current site or at a nearby location. Hennepin County is currently exploring location options and plans to make a location decision by summer 2019. The new library will offer spaces for both focused and collaborative work, technology to bridge the digital divide, a variety of seating options with access to power sources, ample library materials, and early learning spaces for school readiness.
