Judge Validates Bonds and MLK Park for New Library

Great news!

As you may have heard by now, the Winter Park Public Library and the City of Winter Park received some very good news last week. The Board and Staff of the Winter Park Public Library are pleased that Judge Schreiber’s final judgment validates the City’s authority to issue the bonds and to build the new library, event center and parking at the Martin Luther King, Jr.

Park location. This judgement will allow the project to move forward, and we look forward to working with our partners at the City of Winter Park to build the 21st century library and events center our community voted for last March.

“Judge Schreiber’s ruling confirms the city’s position that the project has already gone to vote and the matter has been decided by the voters to build the project at MLK Park,” explained City Manager Randy Knight.

A great deal of media coverage tells more about the situation and the positive outlook for the new library, event center and parking structure. Here are three stories for your review:

We will continue to work with the City through this process and, as always, keep the residents and our patrons updated and involved. There are plans for several community engagement sessions with architects, designers and library staff. Your opinions will help us build a world-class library so keep an eye on our e-mails and social media channels to be a part of the planning.

Thank you for your continued support of the Winter Park Public Library.
