Arlington Breaks Ground on $30 Million Downtown Library Project

The City of Arlington broke ground on a new $30 million library in downtown Tuesday.

The groundbreaking ceremony and reception for the George W. Hawkes Central Library took place at Arlington City Hall -- adjacent to where the new library will be located at Main Street and S. Center Street.

The old Central Arlington Library was demolished last summer, making way for a new multi-story residential development.
