Trent Miller, project director of the Madison Public Library renovations, and Courtney Davis, Foundation Assistant at the Madison Public Library, joined Brian Standing on the 8 O’clock Buzz to discuss the opening of the new Central Library.
The closing of the old building was held with an event called Bookless. At Bookless people enjoyed old art, old books and live music. Trent Miller used this event as a time to look back at the old building and reminisce of all the events that took place there.
The new library premieres with an event called Stacked, a pre-opening event for the Central Library. It is right now set to take place on Sept. 19, 2013. This opening event will be the first of many – and in fact, that Saturday, Sept. 21 will be the official grand opening.
Tickets will go on sale mid-August for Stacked. For more information check the Central Library page for more information on tickets and the library updates.
