Officials break ground on new University Branch Library
A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new University Branch Library last week.
The library will be located at 14010 University Blvd. in Sugar Land, on the campus of the University of Houston System at Sugar Land.
Fort Bend County Judge Bob Hebert and Precinct 4 Commissioner James Patterson officiated the ceremony, with officials from Fort Bend County Commissioners Court, the
University of Houston, Wharton County Junior College, City Council members from Sugar Land, and members of the library board also on hand to celebrate the start of construction.
The planned two-story library was designed by Bailey Architects of Houston, and will be approximately 40,193 square feet in size.
The library is part of a $130-million bond referendum approved by voters in May 2006, which included $24.5 million for three county library projects: the Sienna Branch Library in partnership with Houston Community College; the University Branch Library in partnership with the University of Houston campus in Sugar Land and Wharton County Junior College; and renovations at George Memorial Library in Richmond.
