South Irving will soon have the largest and most high-tech library in the city. “We have the tables that a series of kids can work on that are computerized, we have computerized walls, we have all the tools that they need today to technologically move into the future,” Councilwoman Rose Cannaday said. City leaders and students celebrated the groundbreaking of the library, which will be located at Schulze Drive and Second Street. Like the West Irving Library, the new facility will be eco-friendly and efficient. More than 52,000 square feet of space will feature convertible bookshelves and multiple meeting rooms, phasing out the aging Central Library just down the street. Library Director Chris Dobson said almost 1 million people visited the city’s libraries last year.
