Boca library pressure maintained

Advocates of a new downtown library in Boca Raton said they will keep pressing for the project to go forward despite the economic woes of the town. The Committee to Support Our New Downtown Library wants construction to start in 2010 and pointed to a 2003 $20 million bond issue for two libraries, one of which is completed. The library at 200 NW Second Avenue was built in 1962, and its last renovation was in 1992, which doesn’t meet the needs of the community, advocates said.
