The new Eureka Hills Branch is nearly twice the size of the previous location. It features comfortable seating throughout, a community meeting room and designated areas for teens and children.
The new space enabled the library staff to expand their collection of library materials; 30 percent larger than the previous building. Eight computers are available for public use, along with multiple outlets for laptop users accessing the library’s free Wi-Fi and a couple of computers devoted to children's use.
