Work continues this fall on Petersburg’s new public library building at the corner of Haugen Drive and Second Street.

Construction of the $3.9 million dollar building started up late last spring. For an update on the work, Joe Viechnicki stopped by the work site and spoke with Dan LaForce the city’s onsite construction administrator for the project.
