Come Visit the Newly Expanded Rutland Branch!
The Rutland Branch in Plaza 33 Mall is happy to welcome everyone to its newly expanded space. An extra 4,000 square feet was added to the Rutland library, bringing the branch's floor plan to over 10,000 square feet. This space was used to create a much larger children's area to accommodate storytime crowds, plus a special teens area. A meeting room is also now available with sliding glass doors to allow for quiet meeting or study space.
