SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – The County Library breaks ground for its Daybreak branch on Monday.
“As this part of the County continues to see rapid growth and development, the Daybreak branch is going to be in the center of everything,” Library Director Jim Cooper said. “It’s a great opportunity for people in Daybreak and the surrounding communities to experience a County Library branch a little closer to home.”
Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, South Jordan Mayor Dawn Ramsey, and representatives from the County Library were on site to discuss the importance the library will be to the South Jordan community.
Construction begins following the ceremony and is expected to be finished in summer of 2020.
The new, zero-energy 26,000-square-foot building will be open to the public and offer a unique rooftop experience designed to incorporate urban re-wilding and support an active community.
