Construction is now underway on a long-awaited library and conference center in Lee County.
Officials broke ground Monday on the Oakland Library and Conference center off Oakland Parkway.
The $5.2 million facility will have a 15,000 square foot library, a coffee shop, and a 7,500 square foot Conference center.
"I think it'll be a tremendous boost to the citizens of Lee County. You have a large part of Lee County's population in the southern part of the county so this will be fully utilized," said Head Architect Bob Alexander.
The project is scheduled to be completed in a year.
