Renovation is set to begin on the R.B. Hoover library in Waco.
According to city officials, the renovations will occupy the old Dunlap Building on Bosque Boulevard, tripling its size.
Construction on the library was expected to begin over the summer, but was postponed because planning took longer than expected.
Library officials are excited about the construction, and say with it comes plenty of new resources.

"There will be more space for adults and kids materials and spaces for them, and more computers," said Library Director, James Karney. "Also, the geneology collection, which is located here at the Central Library is going to be moving to that location as well."
The project is expected to be finished by next summer.
