Library building a new computer lab

Construction has begun on a new 16-station computer lab at the Daphne Public Library that will allow the facility to offer more classes and services to patrons

The bulk of the project’s cost — around $1 million — was drawn from a 2006 bond issue used for capital construction, including City Hall and U.S. Highway 90 sewer improvements.

The new 3,191-square-foot computer lab is phase one of three proposed additions. The two additional phases, library director Tonja Young said, will require raising funds.
