New library coming to downtown Hartford


A new library is on its way to downtown Hartford

The State Appropriations Committee is expected to approve nearly $2 billion to build the new Park Street Library branch in the Frog Hollow district. 

The new 13,000 square foot building will be built on the grounds of the abandoned Lyric Theater down the road on Park Street. 

The branch is one of the busiest in the city, and the community has been fighting for 25 years to have it renovated.
