GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — The Grand Island Public Library is set to see big upgrades in the coming year.

Television station KSNB reports that the library will be getting a new space — called a makerspace — in which people can take what they learn at the library and gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment and knowledge.

Library Director Steve Fosselman says the project will create a center plaza, an outdoor discovery space for kids and their parents and a teen area. Other improvements will include 3-D printers, laser cutters, an audio-video suite and a digital media lab.

The estimated cost of the upgrades is about $2 Million. A ground-breaking will be held in July, and the project is set to be completed by January.
