The town of Henrietta and the Henrietta Public Library have announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for the town’s new public library will be held at 11 a.m. March 20 at the site of the new library, 625 Calkins Road, to the east of the Town Recreation Center.

The ceremony will feature brief remarks from Town Supervisor Stephen Schultz, library board of trustees President Laura Osterhout and others.

The new two-floor, 36,000-square-foot library is designed to meet the community’s demand for more quiet space to read and study, more programs for children and teens, and more books for people of all ages for generations to come.

The library is scheduled to open in the spring 2019. Visit for more information.
