Novi Public Library Completed On Time and Under Budget
Link to June 1 Hometown News article, "Mouths drop at sight of new Novi Public Library".
Excerpt: Wow. Amazing. Awesome. Beautiful.
Those are just a few of the many one-word exclamations people used as they made their way through the new Novi Public Library for the first time Tuesday morning.
A small crowd gathered at the entrance to the building a little before 10 a.m. with Kehong Niu and his wife Hiumiu the first in line. They were greeted by several library staffers who fought back tears as people entered.
“It’s absolutely amazing,” said library director Julie Farkas. “I’m so excited for this community and so excited they are in awe of this place.
“It’s a dream come true.”
The library construction was completed on time and under the $12.5 million budget voters approved in 2007.
