Harrington Library is hosting a celebration on Sunday, April 2 from 1-3 p.m. to celebrate the completion of major renovations to the library.

Harrington closed on October 30 to complete the $5 million renovation, which included renovating the children’s area, creating dedicated spaces for a Children’s Program Room and a Teen Space, creating new study rooms, creating extra meeting rooms, installing a new roof and installing a new HVAC system. Operations and storytimes resumed in February.

Sunday’s celebration brings bubbles, games, refreshments, and other activities following a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor John Muns, which will take place at 1:10 p.m.

Harrington was the first of the five Plano libraries and opened in 1969. It is named in honor of Gladys Harrington, a leader who was instrumental in setting up Plano’s first lending library in 1955. It has not been expanded since 1993 when an expansion was approved growing the library from 10,000 to 30,000 square feet.

Harrington Library is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Harrington is located at 1501 18th St.
