New Cedar Rapids Library Construction Will Include Old Bricks

Link to August 18 Cedar Rapids Gazette article, "Sinclair bricks to be used in new library".

Excerpt: Cedar Rapids Public Library’s spokeswoman Amber Mussman reports this morning that the library has received four pallets of bricks from the historic Sinclair smokestack, which the library will incorporate into its new downtown facility to be built across from Greene Square Park on Fourth Avenue SE.

Library Director Bob Pasicznyuk says the library wants to use the bricks because it wants to build a new library that reflects the history and values of the community
