Please join Councilman Paul Johnston and Jefferson Parish Officials as they break ground for the new River Ridge Public Library to be located at 8825 Jefferson Highway.   The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Thursday, September 8, 2016, at 10:00am.
The River Ridge Library designed to look “residential” from the outside is next door to the Hazel Park Hilda Knoff Elementary School and will provide easy access for the school children as well as the public.
The new 10,500 square foot, one story building will include study rooms, separate children and adult areas, a meeting room, computers, DVDs, CDs and planned activities and classes for children, teens and adults.
The estimated total cost of the library will be $6,422,000, provided by Library millage funds, and should take approximately 1 year to completion.
