Construction of the new Canton Public Library is running ahead of schedule, according to library director Jean Sebestyen-Tabor.
"The target date was originally mid-November but with the nice spring we've been having it's been moved up to mid-August,' said Sebestyen-Tabor. "Barring any unforeseen problems, we should be all moved in by mid-September. We won't go over the budget."
The brick work on the new library, south of the Canton Township Hall, is almost completed and installation of windows was scheduled for Wednesday, she sahd. The skylights still need to be installed.
"They have almost completed the storm sewer and water main and soon they will be starting on the sanitary sewer," said Sebestyen-Tabor.
The new library's total cost is $4.5 million, she said.
