Mid-City Library to Reopen on Tuesday, 12/13


Mayor Landrieu will hold a ribbon cutting, Tuesday, December 13 at 10am to open the new Mid-City Library location at 4140 Canal Street in the historic Automotive Life Insurance Building.

The new Mid-City Library location will feature a larger children's room, a dedicated teen space, a Spanish-language collection, a community meeting space and 27 dedicated parking spaces.

The historic building features a modernist design with a glass facade and terrazzo flooring. The building was designed by Curtis & Davis Architects and it was designated a city historic landmark by the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission in 2010. The 9,259 square foot, two-story building sits on a 23,000 square foot lot.
