Construction began Feb. 1, 2013, the $500,000 project is now being completed through the efforts of the city and the County of Hidalgo Urban County Program.
Mayor Jose A. “Fito” Salinas said many parents and children would take advantage of the new facility. It’s expected to open the first week of April.
“I think this is something beautiful for the community,” Salinas said in Spanish. “And this is just the start of what is to come in La Joya, we have various projects underway.”
The mayor added the projects would benefit the community and were in large part due to the help of Diana Serna, director of Hidalgo County Urban County Program. The library sits on two acres out of an estimated 13 acres owned by the city, which will be used for new business.
