New Frisco Library Opening Postponed to March

Frisco’s new $62M public library will now open in early March, a month later than planned, due to supply chain issues according to a Community Impact article. They say,

“The opening of Frisco’s new public library has been delayed until March, according to a representative of the library. 

The $62 million project broke ground in April 2021 and will be Frisco’s sole library facility once it opens. The opening of the new library has been delayed by about a month because of supply chain issues. “Unfortunately due to the worldwide chip shortage and an assortment of other building components affected by the supply chain issues, Frisco Public Library’s opening has been extended to early March,” a representative of the library said.

The opening of Frisco’s new public library, expected on February 4, was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. A limited children’s collection is available elsewhere according to a Frisco Enterprise article which says, 

“Previously, the expectation was for the library to open to the community on Feb. 4, however the opening has been postponed according to an announcement from the Frisco Public Library. 

“The February 4th opening has been moved due to circumstances beyond our control,” the library stated. “Keep an eye on our website for upcoming events in early March!”

The former location closed in early December. A limited children’s collection is available at the micro-library, CONNECTION at Stonebriar Centre.”

Frisco’s new public library, situated at 8000 Dallas Parkway, spans 157,000 sq. ft. and features several dedicated spaces such as a community event room, a quiet reading room, and a kids reading area. The library also boasts a full-size female T-Rex skeleton, which has been endearingly named “Rexy” by the local community.
