The Nashville public library has a plan to fix the public library.
The Nashville Public Libraries (NPL) is planning to begin a $20 million renovation of the Nashville Public Market, according to an email obtained by Breitbart News.
The project is part of the city’s budget for the coming fiscal year.
Nelson said in the email, “The plan is to do a $30 million project on the existing building.
We will also be starting a $40 million project that will involve building new libraries and building a new public marketplace on top of the existing structure.”
Nelson added, “This will include an extension of the current public marketplace that will be built next door.”
The library’s new library will also include an expansion of the public marketplace as well as a new entrance that will connect to the old market entrance.
The $20-million renovation project is slated to be completed in the next five years.NPL officials did not specify how long the library’s current library will remain open, but Nelson told Breitbart News, “We’re going to keep the same core of programming and we’re going the same route of having the public market open year round.”NPL said in its email that it will also hire a consultant to study the current building’s condition and whether it is structurally sound.
Nathan Stover, who currently serves as the NPL’s executive director, said the NSL is also looking at upgrading the existing public marketplace and the existing library.
“There’s always a cost to do that,” Stover said.
“But I would say it’s a pretty good bet that this building will not be a problem.”
The city currently maintains four library branches, three of which are open year-round.
Stover told Breitbart Sports in a phone interview, “It will be very hard for the current library to get any funding to renovate the other two.”
The current library is located in the north end of downtown and serves the city of Nashville.
Stove told Breitbart that the current branch is currently operating at about 80 percent capacity.
Stove said that the city has not decided on a replacement library for the existing branch.
Stover said that since the city is considering a new library, it needs to find a way to fund it.
He added that there are no immediate plans to expand the existing Public Market and Public Market Annex.
“That’s a good question and one that we have to ask ourselves,” Stove said.
Stouters current branch will be closing in 2019.
Stave said that there is a plan for the city to find funding to move forward with the current Public Market expansion.
Nolan said that he believes that the library is facing a budget crunch, particularly in the coming years.
He said that because of the high cost of upkeep and maintenance, the city should consider an immediate closure of the library.
Nelsen said that in order to avoid the financial risk associated with a library closure, NPL officials have discussed ways to preserve existing services such as the Public Market.NOLAN said that this decision is not solely a matter of budgeting, but also a matter about the public’s experience with public library services.
“We want the public to feel comfortable going into the library and the library to have access to the information that they need,” Nelsen said.
“And to have the knowledge that they are using public libraries.
It’s very important that they feel like they’re getting access to all of the services.”
