Commissioners approve name change for future library

RELEASE DATE: June 21, 2006

TAVARES — The Lake County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved a name change for a future library in the Four Corners community at its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, June 20.

Cagan Crossings Community Library
Construction is expected to start in August for the two-story, 30,000-square-foot facility that is being built on a 2-acre site in the Cagans Crossing development, located south of Clermont on U.S. Highway 27. When completed in about a year, the new building and name, Cagan Crossings Community Library, will replace the existing 6,000-square-foot facility, Citrus Ridge Library, located about 1 mile south of the new location.

“I think it’s fitting to rename this library because that’s what the corridor is known as,” said Commissioner Bob Pool. “In addition, the Cagans definitely helped in securing this library site.”

Through reciprocal borrowing agreements with the neighboring counties of Osceola, Orange and Polk, the library is expected to continue serving residents throughout the Four Corners community. The new library will provide a range of services including print, audio visual and online collections, youth and young adult services, computer and Internet access, adult and English as a second language literacy services and programming for all ages. The building will feature separate areas for adult, reference, youth and young adult services, a large meeting room and several small meeting or study rooms.
