Crews will officially start work Tuesday on a new, high-tech library in south Huntsville.
The library will replace the old Grissom High School on Bailey Cove Road near Cecil Ashburn Drive. Once complete, the new $9.5 million library will feature an art gallery, a cafe and a gaming center.
The library will be triple the size of the current location on Weatherly Plaza. It's part of the Sandra Moon Complex that also includes a sports complex with gyms and fields.
The city is fronting $5.6 million of the cost.
Officials say they hope to open the library as early as 2021.
