County Library Breaks Ground for New Daybreak Branch
Tavin Stucki -
SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah–The County Library announced the groundbreaking for its Daybreak branch, which will take place at 10 am on Earth Day—Monday, April 22—at 11358 Grandville Ave (approximately 5600 W) in South Jordan.
“As this part of the County continues to see rapid growth and development, the Daybreak branch is going to be in the center of everything,” Library Director Jim Cooper said. “It’s a great opportunity for people in Daybreak and the surrounding communities to experience a County Library branch a little closer to home.”
Groundbreaking attendees are encouraged to carpool or utilize the TRAX light rail, which has a station across the street.
Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, South Jordan Mayor Dawn Ramsey, and representatives from the County Library, Arch | Nexus, Ascent Construction and the Daybreak neighborhood will be on site to discuss this integral part of the South Jordan community.
Construction will begin following the ceremony, with an approximate finishing date in summer of 2020. The new, zero-energy 26,000-square-foot branch will be open to everyone, and offers a unique rooftop experience designed to incorporate urban re-wilding and support an active community.
Since then, and until the new Daybreak branch is completed, patrons are welcome to and have been visiting the nearby South Jordan, Herriman, Riverton, and Bingham Creek locations, or any of the County Library’s other branches and online resources.
