Found via Enidnews.com | Board votes not to reopen old library building
Enid Library Board members voted Monday to proceed with a temporary library location at Oakwood Mall and not return to the current building, which was heavily damaged by a storm in October.

The decisions were made in two separate motions by board members following an hour-long special meeting in the Cherokee Strip Conference Center. During the meeting, city officials presented discussion items that will be presented to the Enid City Commission tonight in the regular commission meeting. The commission meeting will be 6:30 p.m. at the city administration building, 401 W. Garriott.

The current library building has been closed since the storm in October, leaving Enid residents without library services. During repair work, engineers found a host of other issues with the building, including structural problems and asbestos that must be removed. The library building also is not in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations...
