Rexy arrives at her new home in the Frisco Public Library according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,

“Rexy has arrived at her new home and is already drawing attention at the new Frisco Public Library. Amid the construction she stands, at 26-feet tall and 42-feet long. 

She was debuted via a photo on the projector during the Frisco City Council meeting Oct. 4 by Library Director Shelley Holley.”

According to an update presented at a City Council meeting, the Frisco Public Library is expected to be finished in early 2023 according to a Community Impact article which reports, 

“The new Frisco Public Library is projected to complete construction in early 2023, according to an update presented during a City Council meeting Aug. 2. 

Work on the new library, located at 8000 Dallas Parkway next to the Frisco Discovery Center, is estimated to wrap up in early January, Frisco Library Director Shelley Holley said during the meeting. It was originally planned to finish in fall 2022, but “unusual circumstances” such as shipping shortages pushed the completion date back, Holley said. The $62 million project is projected to stay on budget, she said.”

The new library will feature a community event room, a reading room, a space for kids to read, and Rexy, a full-sized T-Rex skeleton.
