The Sun Ray Library at 2105 Wilson Ave. reopened Saturday, Nov. 8 after undergoing a $5.5 million renovation the past 11 months.
Kicking off the festivities were the Harding High Drum Line members, who joined dignitaries and patrons for the first glimpses of the remodeled space.
The renovated building has more windows, an extra 2,500 square feet of indoor space for the public, an outdoor reading garden, a quiet reading room, study and meeting rooms, and a 900 square-foot community room with after-hours access.
