Youngstown West Side Library now open

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

After a year of construction, the new Youngstown West Side Library is open to the public.

The Michael Kusalaba Branch is 2,000 square foot larger than the old library that stood on the same spot.  

The new branch offers all of the traditional library services, but what sets it apart is the Technology MakerSpace.

"We have a laser engraver, 3-D printer, even down to a button maker, as well as the equipment that lets you transfer old media platforms into digital so you can save all of your old home movies," said Executive Director  Aimee Fifarek.

Other features include a sound studio, study rooms, and a large public meeting space.  A dedication ceremony for the new branch is set for Saturday at 10 am.
