6599 Jaguar Drive
Join us for a special ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor David Coss and Councilor Carmichael Dominguez to celebrate the opening of the Southside Branch Library Plaza on Saturday, December 11 at 11:00 a.m., rain, snow or shine. The Plaza is the last step in completing the Southside Branch Library, which opened in 2007, located at 6599 Jaguar Drive.
The Southside Plaza includes wide brick sidewalks, trees, and shrubs. The Plaza was designed with the original Library plans by Isaac Benton of Integrated Design & Architecture and Harvey Monroe, Jr. of Terraplen. However at the time of construction, the City did not have the funds to complete the Plaza. Councilor Carmichael Dominguez spearheaded the Plaza project. Many of the trees for the site were donated by Jeff and Michelle Branch in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Santa Fe Community Foundation.
The ceremony includes unveiling a bronze statue by Linda Strong of “Children at Play” which has been installed on the Plaza.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Celebration is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Lockwood Construction Company and Wells Fargo.
